MLB notes: Rangers will be missing Carlos Gomez

Texas Rangers center fielder Carlos Gomez will be sidelined for four to six weeks because of a right hamstring strain, his team said.

Gomez, who is batting .246 with four home runs and 13 RBIs, underwent an MRI and was examined by Dr. Keith Meister on Monday, a day after the outfielder was hurt in a 6-4 win over Oakland. He’s being placed on the disabled list.

Gomez scored from second base on Delino DeShields’ infield single in the seventh inning, lunging toward the plate to avoid a bat that was still on the ground.
