Gomez went 2-for-3 with an RBI in Tuesday's game against Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Gomez snapped an 0-for-18 skid with a two-out, run-scoring single up the middle to drive in Jonathan Lucroy in the second. It was Gomez's first hit since blasting a three-run homer in his first at-bat with the Rangers last Thursday. Entering the at-bat, Gomez was 1-for-his-last-29, as he also was in an 0-for-10 stretch with the Astros before being released.

Gomez went 1-for-4 with a three-run homer in his Rangers debut Thursday against the Indians.

EDGE Analysis

After he got signed up by the Rangers over the weekend, it took only a few days for Gomez to make his way back to the majors, and he endeared himself to the fans by getting the offensive party started with his second-inning blast. That said, Gomez is in the midst of his worst MLB season since his rookie year. It seems like the Mets knew what they were doing when they canceled a trade for him at last year's deadline due to concerns about his hip.

Gomez was called up Thursday and will bat eighth and play left field against the Indians, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gomez is expected to be the club's everyday left fielder, and he'll take over in that capacity right away. The 30-year-old had an extremely disappointing campaign with the Astros earlier this season, slashing just .210/.272/.322 in 85 games, but he'll look to turn his season around starting Thursday against Josh Tomlin.

Gomez will likely join the Rangers on Thursday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gomez will be a candidate to earn the Rangers' left field job. Upon his arrival, he'll compete with Nomar Mazara and Delino DeShields for the spot. While neither Mazara nor DeShields have impressed at the plate, Gomez will have to show plenty of improvement from the showing he had with the Astros this season. Before getting released by Houston, Gomez had a .210/.272/.322 line.

Gomez, who signed with the Rangers on Saturday, will be their everyday left fielder according to manager Jeff Bainster, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although Gomez was signed on a low-risk deal and has under-performed for the last season-and-a-half, the Rangers seem comfortable taking little time to insert him into a prominent position. Currently, a soft platoon between Jurickson Profar and Delino DeShields is occupying that role, but both of those players could be pressed for playing time after Gomez gets the call. He'll have to put forth a better showing than he did during his time in Houston if he plans to hang on to that role, however.

Gomez signed a minor league deal with the Rangers on Saturday, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

As expected, the two sides officially reached a deal Saturday evening after reports of the impending move surfaced earlier in the day. Gomez will initially report to Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday, where he's expected to play in a handful of games before a potential call-up to the big league club. Gomez struggled mightily as a member of the Astros, posting an uninspiring .594 OPS prior to being released Friday.

Gomez is closing in on a contract with the Rangers, Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball reports.

EDGE Analysis

Released by the Astros on Friday after passing through waivers unclaimed, Gomez is now expected to remain in state and head to the Rangers. The expectation is that he'll initially head to the minors for a handful of game before potentially joining the big league club sometime later next week. Gomez, who's struggled out to a .594 OPS this season, is not likely to be much more than a bench option down the stretch.

Gomez was released by the Astros on Friday, Jon Morosi of FOX Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gomez was not claimed on waivers, and it appears a minor-league stint was not in the cards for either team or player, so he is now a free agent. Gomez owns just a .594 OPS this season, but given his track record, he figures to hook on with a team looking for outfield help in the coming days.

Gomez was designated for assignment on Wednesday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Since the All-Star break, Gomez has posted a line of just .176/.222/.275, bringing his already disappointing batting average down to just .210 for the season. At 30 years old, it's entirely possible for Gomez get his hitting back on track, but there's plenty of reason to be skeptical. His 31 percent strikeout rate has lead to a career-low on-base percentage of just .272 and his power has been nonexistent, as he's posting a slugging percentage of just .322. If Gomez clears waivers, he'll likely be sent to Triple-A Fresno.

Gomez is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Jake Marisnick is set to take over in center field Tuesday while Gomez takes a seat. Gomez is mired in yet another dreadful slump that has torpedoed his batting average down to .210 on the season. He has one hit and no walks in his last 13 at-bats and is hitting under .225 against both left and right-handed pitching, making him an untenable fantasy option with playoffs around the corner in most formats.
