Gomez draws comparisons to his relative and long time major leaguer Tony Fernandez, though Fernandez is five inches taller. At 5-feet-9, 160 pounds, Gomez is an undersized middle infielder with flare and above-average defensive ability. In the field, his actions are smooth and he has the ability to make difficult plays look routine. While the knock on Gomez is his fringe-average arm strength, he has soft hands and uses good footwork to get himself in the proper position to make plays. Staying at shortstop would make him more valuable, but some scouts think he'll eventually move to second base, in which case he will need to hit more. At the plate, Gomez has a quick lefthanded swing, spraying balls into the gaps. He shows occasional power, but capitalizing on his above-average speed with small ball better suits his skills. He was a regular on the showcase circuit last summer, and has gained a reputation as a grinder. He's committed to play for Miami if he doesn't sign.
