Carlos Gomez is not in the lineup for Game 1 of the ALDS on Thursday.
Gomez is still recovering from an intercostal muscle sprain and could be used sporadicly throughout the ALDS. If this were the regular season, he most certainly would be placed on the disabled list, but Gomez has no choice but to play through pain. He should be available as a pinch hitter on Thursday. Jake Marisnick will bat ninth and play centerfield. Analysis: David Kerr
