Gomez went 3-for-4 with two home runs, five RBI and three runs during Thursday's win over Toronto.

EDGE Analysis

This was just Gomez's sixth game since returning from the disabled list, and he already has four homers, 14 RBI and nine runs during that span. His scorching hot stretch has him up to a rock-solid .267/.346/.515 slash line with nine bombs, 27 RBI, five stolen bases and 28 runs for the year, as he's quickly made up for lost time.

Gomez is batting sixth and playing center field Thursday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Go-Go took a break Wednesday but is back in action for the Rangers. In his five games since returning from the disabled list, Gomez is 6-for-19 with three home runs and nine RBI, reminding his fantasy owners why they're happy to have him back.

Gomez is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

EDGE Analysis

Gomez has hit safely in each of his five games since returning from the disabled list and has three home runs in that span, but he'll hit the bench for a night off. Delino DeShields will patrol center field for the evening to replace him.

Gomez went 1-for-4 with a solo homer and three strikeouts against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

He's hit safely in all five games since returning from the DL, going 6-for-19 with three homers and nine RBI, offsetting the fact that Gomez has also struck out eight times in that span. Even in his best days, Gomez wasn't a huge asset in batting average, and his high-strikeout ways mean that isn't going to change now. However, he looks set to provide highly fantasy-relevant power and speed numbers as long as he's healthy.

Gomez went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 7-3 loss to the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Gomez lit up the Mariners for four hits -- including two long balls -- and eight RBI during the three-game series, an impressive achievement considering he had just been activated from the disabled list Friday after a month-long layoff due to a hamstring injury. After back-to-back disappointing campaigns that included stints with the Brewers, Astros and Rangers, Gomez has showcased improved power and on-base skills when he's been healthy this season, but expecting further growth in his .253 batting average might not be realistic. Gomez's .324 BABIP and 27.1 percent strikeout rate suggest that fantasy owners might actually be fortunate that he hasn't been more of a sinkhole in the category to date.

Gomez went 1-for-3 with two RBI and two runs in Saturday's 10-4 win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

Gomez has been instrumental in both of the Rangers' victories since his return from the disabled list earlier this weekend, driving in six runs and supplying two extra-base knocks in those contests. The 31-year-old's 27.2 percent strikeout rate remains a concern, but if Gomez can continue to make an impact as a power hitter and base stealer, fantasy owners should be able to stomach any drop in batting average that might accompany the counting-stats production.

Gomez went 2-for-5 with a double, a home run and four RBI in Friday's 10-4 win over the Mariners.

EDGE Analysis

The blast was his fifth of the year. Gomez made a strong return to action after being sidelined with a hamstring injury since May 14, and he should quickly reclaim the starting center field spot for the Rangers.

Gomez (hamstring) was activated from the disabled list and will start Friday's contest with the Mariners, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

As anticipated, GoGo will return from the disabled list and resume his regular role patrolling center field for Texas. He'll bat fifth Friday against Seattle as he looks to improve his .246 batting average. To make room for he and Mike Napoli to come off the DL, Ryan Rua and Jurickson Profar were optioned to Triple-A Round Rock.

Gomez (hamstring) is expected to be activated from the 10-day disabled list either Friday or Saturday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

After playing in two rehab games for Triple-A Round Rock last weekend as a designated hitter, Gomez started for the club in the outfield Wednesday, going 0-for-3 at the plate. He's set to man center field for Round Rock again Thursday, and if his hamstring responds well to the activity, it looks like he'll back for the weekend. Delino DeShields and Jurickson Profar would likely be most at risk of losing at-bats once Gomez is activated.

Gomez (hamstring) will resume his rehab assignment Wednesday with Double-A Frisco, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Gomez had previously appeared in two games for Triple-A Round Rock over the weekend, going 2-for-8 with three strikeouts while serving as the club's designated hitter. He rejoined the Rangers in Houston on Monday to resume working out, and now appears set to see how his strained right hamstring responds to outfield duty. It's expected that he'll play in three games with Round Rock before potentially coming off the disabled list as soon as Saturday. Gomez noted that he's still about 10 days to two weeks away from running at 100 percent speed, so don't expect him to be active on the basepaths immediately upon his activation.
