    Shortstop Edwin Gomez did not play well this spring, and the consensus seems to be that he will eventually have to move off the position. With a 6-foot-3, 175-pound frame, Gomez is already more physical than his cousin, Alex Cintron of the Nationals. A move to a corner outfield spot is likely, though he might not have the bat to play there. Gomez is a switch-hitter and is better from the left side.
