Former Boston Red Sox fan favorite Jonny Gomes will serve as a guest studio analyst on NESN’s pre- and post-game shows during this week’s four-game series against the Toronto Blue Jays.
Gomes played parts of 13 seasons in the major leagues, including the memorable 2013 campaign with the Boston Red Sox, his first season with the team. He hit a clutch 3-run home run in Game 4 of that World Series.
He was a career .242 hitter and slugged 162 home runs. He ended his playing career in 2016 with a brief stint playing for the GiaTohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles in Japan.
