Description: Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez is a career .067 hitter (1-for-15) against Cubs starter Edwin Jackson.

Description: Milwaukee center fielder Carlos Gomez has gone 5-for-18 with a double, a homer and four RBI in the first four games of August after finishing July in a huge slump.
Insight: Gomez went 0-for-17 with eight Ks in the last four games of the month, and he's continued to strike out frequently in August (6 Ks in 18 at-bats). The Brewers center fielder is a fantasy stud because he hits for power, drives in runs, steals bases and scores runs, but he was never going to be able to carry a .300 average for the entire season when he strikes out so much.
