News: Gomes hit leadoff and went 2-for-5 with a homer in Boston's win over the Yankees on Friday. The two hits raised his average above .200 for the first time this season. Impact: Gomes is slow out of the gate in 2014, having struck out 13 times in 28 at-bats. He's hit leadoff three times and may get a few more chances there until Daniel Nava finds his bat.(RotoWire, )

News: Gomes is at the top of the order and manning left field Tuesday against the Rangers. Impact: As he did last Thursday, Gomes is batting leadoff against a left-handed starter, Martin Perez. Gomes is replacing the disappointing Daniel Nava, who has begun the season on a 4-for-29 stretch.(RotoWire, )

News: Gomes hit leadoff Thursday night and went 1-for-4 with two strikeouts in a win over Baltimore. Impact: Manager John Farrell tweaked the batting order, facing a lefty for the first time this season. It's unknown whether Gomes will be the go-to leadoff hitter against left-handers; we suspect Shane Victorino will be considered when he's healthy or Grady Sizemore when he's not being rested.(RotoWire, )

News: Gomes is starting in left field and batting fifth Wednesday in Baltimore, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: After Mike Carp got the nod against right-hander Chris Tillman in Monday's opener, Gomes will man the position Wednesday versus another righty, Ubaldo Jimenez. Gomes will be attempting to turn around a horrid spring in which he hit just .160/.236/.220 with one long ball, three RBI, three runs scored, and a 4:11 BB:K in 50 at-bats.(RotoWire, )
