Various outlets are reporting that Chipper Jones will replace Matt Kemp on the NL All Star roster. That means Braun, as the top remaining vote-getter on the player ballot, will take his place in the starting lineup.
Gomez has been in the Rockies organization his whole career, where he had a .268/.306/.425 line in seven minor league seasons. He has never played at Triple-A and had a very brief major league call up last season. Gomez was Baseball-America's #95 prospect prior to 2008, but the 24-year-old has played in just three games this season. He has been optioned to Brevard County.
