Updating a previous report, Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez (shoulder, back) said he is fine after leaving the game early Monday, March 23. Gomez added he felt a twinge in his shoulder after sliding into second base, but it was not why he came out of the game.
Fantasy Tip: Gomez ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) is a rare five-category contributor worth selecting in the middle of Round 1 on draft day. Continue to check back to see if there are any linger issues with Gomez's shoulder or back. Opening the season at home against a weak Colorado Rockies pitching staff projects favorably for him in FantasyScore contests, too.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez (back) left the game early Monday, March 23, after he slid hard into second back in the first inning. Gomez had a heat pack on his back Monday morning, too.
Fantasy Tip: It was likely a precautionary move, and until there is a contrary update, continue to view Gomez ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) as a high-end outfielder. He is a first-round lock and likely to go in the middle of Round 1 of drafts. The Brewers open the season at home against the Colorado Rockies, and there is huge upside for Gomez in FantasyScore contests during that first series.

Milwaukee Brewers OF Carlos Gomez and 2B Scooter Gennett are manager Ron Roenicke's options at the leadoff spot this year. If Gomez doesn't hit atop the order, he'd likely bat fifth.
Fantasy Tip: Either way, Gomez is a candidate for a mid-round fantasy selection in the first round of drafts in 2015 because of the production he can give you across the board. Hitting in the middle of the order would significantly increase his RBI chances, but it might also hurt his chances of scoring runs.
