Player Notes
Jonny Gomes will bat fifth Thursday against the Tigers.

Advice: Gomes, who was acquired from the Braves earlier this week, will start in left field against southpaw Matt Boyd. The 34-year-old owns an .890 OPS against left-handed pitching this season and makes for an appealing play in daily formats.

Royals acquired OF Jonny Gomes and cash considerations from the Braves in exchange for SS Luis Valenzuela.

Advice: Gomes has batted just .221/.325/.364 on the season but entered play Monday with a .271/.375/.458 batting line in the second half. He should serve mainly as a pinch-hitting option versus left-handers down the stretch.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Royals have acquired Jonny Gomes from the Braves.

Advice: CBS Sports' Jon Heyman says the Braves will receive infield prospect Luis Valenzuela in return, with the Braves also sending the Royals some cash. Gomes was in the Braves' lineup Monday but was pulled following the fifth inning after the trade was apparently agreed upon. He's hitting only .221/.325/.364 on the season but entered play Monday with a .271/.375/.458 batting line in the second half. He'll offer the Royals a nice pinch-hitting option versus lefties.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that "a few teams" are showing interest in Jonny Gomes.

Advice: Gomes could be a solid pinch-hitting option against lefties for a contending team down the stretch. He's hitting just .223/.327/.368 overall this season but has a .271/.375/.458 batting line since the All-Star break.
