Description: Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez is a career .500 hitter with a pair of homers versus Pittsburgh left-hander Francisco Liriano.
Insight: Gomez is on fire, batting .390 with three homers and a 1.164 OPS through the first nine games. He comes off a series in Philadelphia where he went 8-for-16 with five extra base hits. All these numbers means he's a must start on Friday.

Description: Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez delivered four hits Friday in a win over Boston.
Insight: Gomez (6-for-14) was one of nine players in MLB with at least 20 steals and 20 HR last season. Don't be surprised if he repeats that feat in 2014.
 
4/1/2014 11:01:00 PM
Description: Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez hit a solo homer and stole a base Tuesday against the Braves.
Insight: Gomez did plenty of both last season, hitting 24 homers and swiping 40 bags. He has been moved to leadoff this season to replace the departed Norichika Aoki so he'll have fewer RBI chances but should score more runs.
 
3/22/2014 4:07:00 PM
Description: Brewers manager Ron Roenicke announced that Carlos Gomez will be the Brewers leadoff hitter.
Insight: Fantasy-wise it will hurt his RBI total (73 last season), but the rest of his game should be uneffected. He was a fantasy stud last season, batting .284 with 24 HR, 80 runs and 40 SB to go along with the RBIs.

Description: Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez had minor surgery to remove some "loose bodies" in his right elbow. SOURCE: Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel
Insight: Fantasy-wise, it's a non-issue. Gomez was spectacular this season and he should continue to be a four-category stud (AVG, SLUG, HR and SB) in 2014.
 
9/28/2013 9:23:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez demolished the Mets with four hits Saturday at Citi Field.

9/25/2013 8:00:00 PM
Description: Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez was ejected in bizarre fashion Wednesday night against Atlanta.
Insight: Gomez whacked a home run to left field in the first inning and then ran his mouth to almost every Brave that he passed on his way around the bases. Brian McCann responded by blocking home plate. A brawl erupted and soon Gomez was thrown out of the game. He was given credit for the home run, though he never actually touched home plate. Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman was also thrown out for his role in the melee.

He's htting .222 with four extra-base hits (2 HR) and a .609 OPS over his last 35 games. Fantasy owners might want to explore other options Sunday.

Description: Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez is just 2-for-18 (.111) with four strikeouts versus reds starter Homer Bailey.
Insight: Gomez had a great matchup on Friday and came through for fantasy owners with three hits and five RBI, but Saturday is another day and a poor matchup.

Description: Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez is a career .500 hitter with a pair of home runs and a 1.750 OPS in 12 at-bats against Reds ace Mat Latos.
Insight: Gomez's breakout first half is a thing of the past as he's batted just .243 with an OPS 165 points below his pre All-Star break numbers. Maybe this matchup will get him going.
 
9/7/2013 1:21:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez is not in Saturday's starting lineup due to "general soreness."
Insight: The aches and pains hurt a lot more after going 3-for-21 (.143) over his last six games.
 
9/4/2013 12:41:00 PM
Description: Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez went 0-for-4 in his return to the lineup on Tuesday. He should fare much better Wednesday against Francisco Liriano.

Description: Brewers All-Star center fielder Carlos Gomez won't be in action Monday against Pittsburgh. SOURCE: Tom Haudricourt, Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

Description: Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez (knee) is ahead of schedule, but fantasy owners shouldn't expect him to start in the series against the Cardinals. He could however, pinch hit.
Insight: He's been out since Thursday with a sprained knee. Gomez (.288, 18 HR, 55 RBI, 65 runs, 30 SB) is most likely to return for the weekend series with Cincinnati.
