Gomez was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. He notched four hits and struck out five times in 15 plate appearances with the big club. Gomez has split time between three levels (MLB, Triple-A and Double-A) already this season, and should serve as a depth option at Triple-A for the foreseeable future.
Gomez was added to the 25-man roster on Tuesday. Gomez was slashing .297/.317/.416 across 101 at-bats at Double-A in 2018. The 25-year-old made his major-league debut with San Francisco last season, and collected eight hits -- two for extra bases -- three runs and two RBI in 33 at-bats during his first taste of the majors. Gomez and Kelby Tomlinson figure to split time at the keystone while Joe Panik (thumb) and Alen Hanson (hamstring) are out. In a corresponding move, Austin Slater was sent to Triple-A.
Gomez was optioned to Double-A Richmond on Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Gomez appeared in 14 Cactus League games for the Giants this spring, going 7-for-27 (.259) with a home run along the way. After hitting .305/.330/.458 over 78 games at Double-A Richmond and playing in 22 games for San Francisco last season, Gomez figures to make his way up to Triple-A Sacramento during the upcoming campaign.
Gomez (knee) remains sidelined Sunday, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports. He was expected to play in rehab games with High-A San Jose on Thursday and Friday, but has not yet done so. It remains to be seen when he will be activated from the disabled list. When he returns, he will likely resume a part-time role.
Gomez (knee) will play two games with High-A San Jose on Thursday and Friday before returning to the Giants on Saturday, Andrew Baggarly of the Bay Area News Group reports. Gomez was placed on the 10-day DL last Saturday due to knee inflammation that had kept him out of the lineup for the previous couple games. He was able to hit the field and take grounders Tuesday, and barring any setbacks, should be able to rejoin the big-league club prior to Saturday's contest against the Phillies.
