Gomez said he pinched his shoulder after sliding awkwardly on a triple. He was caught between sliding head-first or feet-first and slid past the bag. When he reached with his left arm to grab the bag he injured the shoulder. He didn’t need an MRI or injection.
“It’s sore, but it’s good,” he said. “I didn’t prepare my body for one or the other. It’s a day to day thing.”
Both Gomez and Gallo will hit batting practice Wednesday.
Gomez is hitting .344 with nine RBIs this spring. He has three homers, three doubles and a triple in 32 at-bats. Most importantly, Gomez said, he’s been hitting to all fields.
“I feel way better than I did last year,” he said. “I’ve been really consistent with what I’m doing at the plate so I’m really happy with what I see so far.”
