Sunday Roto Round Up: Carlos Gomez Time?

OF Carlos Gomez. Minnesota Twins:  The early season victim of a healthy, and more productive, Minnsoeta Twins outfield jam, Gomez has been given new life thanks to the injuries of Michael Cuddyer and Denard Span.  He hit a HR and stole his 5th base.  Unfortunately, he doesn't appear to steal bases despite the recent run of everyday playing time.


DH Andruw Jones, Texas Rangers:  Jones homered for the second consecutive game against his former team.  Prior to this series, Jones was mired in a 2-25 slump that saw his feel-good story go from a .288 AVg to .248.  Unfortunately, Andruw doesn't face his fomrer teasm for the remainder of inter-league play.

3B Gordon Beckham, Chicago White Sox:  The White Sox rookie went 1-4 with a double and is hitting an embarassing 114/184/171 in his 1st ten major league games.  He does have an 86% contact rate so there is hope that a min-break is about to occur.

OF Andrew McCutchen. Pittsburgh Pirates:  2-3 with a SB and two walks bring the rookie's 49 AB season to a respectable 327/377/429.  His 82% may indicate some luck involved in the AVG so beware.

C Kelly Shoppach, Cleveland Indians:  Before the season began, Shoppach was a trendy deep sleeper at catcher thanks to a 21 HR 2008.  He hit his 5th HR and now sports an unseemly 200/331/357 slashstat line.  Thanks to a 59% contact rate, I wouldn't be optimistic, but his contact rate was just 62% last year, and just 65% in 2007.  In both seasons, Shoppach hit .261.

8th Inning Holds: Ramon Troncosco LAD (6), John Grabow PIT (11)

Saves: Matt Capps PIT (16), Boby Jenks CSW (14), J.P. Howell TB (3), Jonathan Broxton LAD (16)
