After constant fluctuation throughout their lineup this season, it appears the Texas Rangers may finally be seeing things return to their normal form. On Friday, Texas activated center fielder Carlos Gomez off the disabled list.
Gomez missed a month of action with a right hamstring he suffered back in early May. Before the injury sidelined him, the 31-year-old center fielder posted a .246/.331/.423 line with a 98 wRC+, four home runs and five stolen bases. He should see clsoe to every day playing time back in center field for the Rangers, though some time could be split with the speedt outfielder Delino DeShields Jr in a crowded outfield.
In shallow leagues, Gomez can be left in free agency. But for fantasy owners in deeper leagues, especially points leagues, Gomez could make for a nice depth outfielder with the potential to put up some nice power numbers and stolen bases when he is healthy.
Texas also activated designated hitter Mike Napoli and starting pitcher Tyson Ross off the disabled list. So the Rangers are certainly receiving numerous boosts as they look to turn things around from a slow start to the season.
