Jonny Gomes warns Hanley Ramirez about playing LF for Red Sox
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(3/17/15) Hanley Ramirez is expected to play left field for the Red Sox this season, and a former left fielder has some advice for him.
Jonny Gomes visited JetBlue Park, where the Sox play their spring training games, as a member of the visiting Braves. A veteran of playing the Green Monster for the Sox, Gomes warned Ramirez that the replica wall in Florida is "way different" from the real thing.
"I think I played that wall pretty well," Gomes said, according to the Boston Herald's Jason Mastrodonato, "but I think the cat is out of the bag that that wall is way different. From the padding to the net, the dimensions, feet-wise, are the same. I wouldn’t be in any hurry to master JetBlue’s wall for Fenway’s wall, but I guess it’s a good starting point."
"There’s nothing like that in the game, nothing like that in high school, college, minor league ball," Gomes said. "You can’t just go out there and be like, ‘OK, I’ll nail this.’ There’s definitely a method to the madness."
The key, Gomes said, is for Ramirez to work hard at getting to know the Monster. "Being extremely open and having the work ethic to learn it," Gomes said. "That wall hasn’t moved in 100-plus years and balls are bouncing off that wall pretty similarly to the way they did 100 years ago. At the same time, it’s so foreign from anywhere else. It’s not like grabbing a wall and throwing a ball off it. There’s a lot to be learned off that wall."
Braves' Gonzalez: Jonny Gomes could be in 'soft platoon' in LF

Braves' Fredi Gonzalez begins to ponder options at cleanup spot
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/5/15) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said he is leaning toward batting Jonny Gomes or Chris Johnson cleanup against left-handed starters, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He might even move Freddie Freeman to fourth against right-handed starters, but Gonzalez is not sure yet if that will happen.
Justin Upton, who was traded to San Diego in the offseason, started a team-high 120 games as the Braves' cleanup hitter in 2014. Johnson made 17 starts in the cleanup spot last season.
As a team, the Braves hit .255 with a .444 slugging percentage, .763 OPS, 25 home runs, 37 doubles and a team-best 102 RBI out of the fourth spot in the lineup last season.
Braves sign outfielder Jonny Gomes
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(1/22/15) The Braves have signed outfielder Jonny Gomes, confirms CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The deal was initially reported by Yahoo Sports.
Gomes has been linked to the team this offseason, and could be used as a platoon option in left. Gomes, 34, has consistently hit better against lefties over his career, posting a .277/.376/.485 slash line against southpaws. The deal is for one year, and contains a vesting option, according to FoxSports.com. Gomes will make $4 million in 2015, and has a $3 million vesting option for 2016. If Gomes' option doesn't vest, it becomes a team option, according to Heyman.
