Update: If Gomes (shoulder) is healthy, he'll likely be the Devil Rays' DH on most days, the team's official site reports.
Recommendation: Gomes underwent shoulder surgery last September. Rehab reportedly has gone very well, and Gomes is expected to be able to swing a bat as soon as he arrives at the Rays' camp. The team also hopes Gomes' right shoulder will be healthy enough to allow him to play some outfield on an occasional basis as well. The Rays have many DH-first base candidates in camp with no clear incumbents, so Gomes will get every chance to claim a near-everyday role.
What do you all think of not giving up on gomes now?
