Gomez was overshadowed by Ryan Braun's three-homer game, but he took some voracious cuts of his own and is now hitting .323 on the season. He is off to a hot start and may be in the process of disproving the skeptics who thought last year's All-Star season was a fluke.

Carlos Gomez hit a leadoff home run and stole a base in the Brewers' loss to the Braves on Tuesday.
Gomez took Alex Wood deep to open the bottom half of the first inning, his first homer of the year. He later stole his first base of 2014, and the center fielder also walked twice as he tries to get into the spirit of his new role as leadoff hitter. As demonstrated, Gomez is one of the most dangerous double threats in the game these days.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke announced Saturday that Carlos Gomez will serve as the Brewers leadoff hitter entering the 2014 season.
The other option for the spot was Jean Segura, who could still wind up hitting second. The 28-year-old Gomez is coming off a breakout season where he slashed .284/.338/.506 with 24 homers, 73 RBI and 40 stolen bases. He'll see his RBI totals take a hit with the move, but should be poised to score considerably more runs.
