Boston Red Sox first baseman/DH Mauro Gomez has been named the International League MVP. Gomez, 27, hit .310 in 100 games for the AAA PawSox, clouting 34 doubles, 24 homers and 74 RBI. After being called up to the Red Sox, he is hitting .327—including three hits in last night's 10-3 loss to the Angels. Gomez—along with Ryan Lavarnway and Jose Iglesias—was also named to the 2012 postseason International League All-Star Team. Gomez joins Jim Rice, Ted Cox, Gary Allenson, Dave Stapleton, Pat Dodson and Jeff Bailey as IL MVPs from the Pawtucket Red Sox. Congratulations, Mauro!
