Re: Monday Aug 31 Minor League Updates
Check his career numbers if you don't believe me--even if you don't platoon Gomes, he will OPS better than an average corner outfielder. That production warrants more playing time than as a fifth outfielder on any club. However, if the manager is smart enough to know when to play him, he produces as well as almost anyone. I'm not advocating making Gomes the starting left fielder of the future, but any team should be glad to have him on the bench.
