Dominican baseball player of the week / Pelotero de la semana: Carlos Gomez

Dominican baseball player Carlos Gomez has had a pretty average career, spending parts of six seasons in the big leagues. He came up with the Mets in 2007 and then was a full-time starter for two years with the Twins. He has been with the Brewers for the last three seasons, and the highlight of his career probably came last season when he was a member of a Brewers team that made the NLCS.

That is until now. Gomez was awarded the NL Player of the Week last, as he hit .346 (9-for-26) with four home runs and scored 10 runs. He was also first among National Leaguers with 10 RBI and three stolen bases. 

The Santiago, Dominican Republic native Gomez already has a career high nine home runs this season. Though the Brewers are more than likely out of the playoff picture, Gomez could possibly see a career high in RBI, walks, and stolen bases as well. Some consolation for a bad year as a team.

Gomez’s Milwaukee teammate, and fellow Dominican, Aramis Ramirez (.417, 10 H, 4 2B, 2 HR, 6 RBI) also received some consideration for the player of the week award. Ramirez won the Dominican Player of the Week award earlier this season. He is from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
