Gomez (shoulder) is out of the lineup Friday against the White Sox. For the fifth consecutive game, Gomez is being withheld from the lineup.

Gomez (shoulder) is not in the lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox. Gomez has missed the last three games while dealing with a cyst on his right shoulder, and while was hoping to return to action for Thursday's series opener, it appears the issue is still bothering him enough to keep him on the bench another day. It still seems likely that he'll be able to avoid the disabled list, though that may change if he isn't back in action over the weekend. Drew Robinson and Delino DeShields have both started in center field while Gomez has been sidelined, with Robinson getting the nod Thursday.
Gomez has been dealing with a cyst on his right shoulder that has left him in some pain, but he's optimistic that he'll be available to play Thursday against the White Sox, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports. The Rangers had previously characterized the issue that has kept Gomez unavailable the past three games as an illness, but it's now apparent he's dealing with something a little more serious than a cold or a case of the flu.

Delino DeShields and Drew Robinson have both picked up starts in center field while Gomez has been sidelined.
