|Blue Jays steal player from AL East rival|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(4/8/13) The Blue Jays claimed infielder Mauro Gomez off waivers from the Red Sox Monday. Gomez was designated for assignment last week to clear a roster spot for Jackie Bradley.

(3/31/13) The Red Sox designated infielder Mauro Gomez for assignment Sunday to make room on the 40-man roster for Jackie Bradley Jr., reports the Boston Globe.
Gomez, 28, hit .156 this spring over 45 at-bats. He played in 37 games for Boston last year and hit .275 with two homers and 17 RBI.
|Red Sox option Mauro Gomez to Triple-A|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(3/28/13) The Red Sox announced Thursday they optioned Mauro Gomez to Triple-A Pawtucket. Gomez hit .156 (7 for 45) with two doubles and five RBI in 22 spring games.
|Mauro Gomez is better than you think|
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(3/19/13) With David Ortiz out indefinitely, the Red Sox are expected to use a mix of players in the first base/DH spot. You may want to take a closer look at Mauro Gomez. In 102 at-bats last year with the Red Sox, Gomez hit .275 with two home runs, five doubles and 17 RBI. At 28 years old, that's his only major-league experience.
But Gomez is more than a happy wanderer destined to remain in the minors. He's hit .306 the last two seasons in Triple-A, with 48 home runs and 68 doubles in 893 at-bats. And this was in the pitcher-friendly International League. Gomez was blocked in the Atlanta system by Freddie Freeman. He's blocked in Boston by Ortiz and Mike Napoli. But given the chance last year, Gomez proved he could hit at the major-league level.
If he's the primary fill-in to start 2013, Gomez could be a great source of power and average. I'm grabbing him late in AL-only leagues. And if there's any indication he will be the main replacement if Ortiz continues to battle heel pain, Gomez could work his way into 15-team mixed consideration as an early-season sleeper.
|Gomez off to a solid start|
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(2/21/13) Red Sox first baseman Mauro Gomez enjoyed a solid performance during Thursday afternoon's exhibition game against Boston College. He went a perfect 3 for 3 with a double and two RBI in a 11-0 victory.
|Mauro Gomez had a surprisingly solid rookie campaign for the Red Sox in 2012, hitting .275 with two home runs and 17 RBI in 102 at-bats. The 28-year-old had toiled in the minors for nine seasons before injuries opened the door for Gomez. With three seasons of 24 or more home runs in his last four minor league seasons, and a career minor league average of .281, Gomez looks to be a bench player for the Red Sox, as first base, third base, and designated hitter are all filled. If injury strikes again, or if Gomez is traded this spring to a team with a full-time role for him, he could be a nice deeper mixed league candidate. For now, though, Gomez is injury insurance in AL-only formats -- a big bat with nice average left wasting away on the bench. (Updated 1/9/13)|
