News: Gomez went 2-for-4 with a home run in Wednesday's spring game and is hitting .435 (10-for-23) with three home runs and 10 RBI in 11 games this spring.
Impact: Gomez is sizzling right now, and fantasy owners will no doubt hope he can carry that over to the regular season. Manager Ron Roenicke has not announced where Gomez will hit in the Brewers' batting order, but he currently appears ticketed for the leadoff spot again.

News: Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Tuesday that once he chooses between Gomez and Scooter Gennett as the leadoff hitter, he will stick with that player, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Impact: Gomez will likely bat either first or fifth, and it's possible the Brewers eventually decide to split leadoff duties between him and Gennett, based on the handedness of the opposing pitcher. It sounds as if Roenicke doesn't want to start the season that way, so Gomez will likely stick in one spot early on.
