I don't know much about him. Can someone tell me about Carlos Gomez? Specifically, his SB potential?
Gomez is the Twins leadoff hitter. Some say he is the most "electric player" in the majors. They are already comparing him to Rickey Henderson. I have him on a few my teams, more a Roto-guy not really a h2h player. He has been hitting around .260-270 the whole season. Carlos started off stealing a lot of bags but recently got thrown out (i think) 4 times in a row. He stole 3rd last night, so I am hoping for some more to come.
He should steal another 20-30 bags if he stays healthy. I highly recomend him in AL-keeper leagues. I wouldn't give up Dunn for him, but depending on your needs you might want him on your team. Please post your lineup.
Hope this helped
