• Roenicke is considering moving center fielder Carlos Gomez up in the batting order for the coming two-game series against the Rangers. Gomez has mostly been hitting seventh.
"We'll see how we go, whether it's fifth, whether it's sixth, I'm not sure where he really, ideally fits in because he's hitting the ball so well," Roenicke said. "There's a good case for moving him up to one or two, also.
"I think part of [Gomez's success] is where he is, but there may come a time when I want to move him up somewhere at the beginning. To have that kind of speed and be able to disrupt people if you get on base like he's getting on base now, maybe that's where he belongs."
