Agree. I have to say, I'm really surprised with how Gomes is swinging the bat given the sporadic playing time of a backup catcher. Normally young guys struggle in that role, but he's been really productive when given the chance.
The league will adjust. He's averaging only 1.2 balls per plate appearance, mostly because his chase rate is at 38.2%. I know pitchers are hesitant to throw him breaking balls because walking him to roll over the order is a bad idea, but he'll start getting a steadier diet of offspeed stuff, and it's unlikely that he'll suddenly become a more patient hitter. We'll see how he adjusts.
His weaknesses as a hitter would get exposed pretty quickly if he played every day. Why change what's working now?
