Astros CF Carlos Gomez sits on Wednesday with sore knee


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(8/12/2015) Astros center fielder Carlos Gomez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's clash with the Giants. Gomez is dealing with a sore knee he suffered when he banged his knee against the outfield wall while making a catch on Tuesday.

Hinch did say Gomez could appear in Wednesday's game if necessary. 


Carlos Gomez makes Astros debut Friday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/31/2015) Carlos Gomez made his Astros debut Friday against the Diamondbacks. Gomez started in center field and hit second behind leadoff hitter Jose Altuve.

Gomez was acquired in a trade with the Brewers on Thursday. He is back in the AL for the first time since 2009. He spent the 2008-09 seasons with the Twins before being traded to Milwaukee in Nov. 2009.


Astros acquire Carlos Gomez, Mike Fiers from Brewers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) The Astros and the Brewers have struck a deal that would send center fielder Carlos Gomez and starter Mike Fiers to Houston, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports. The Brewers are expected to get several prospects back in the deal, Heyman adds.

Gomez was nearly dealt to the Mets on Wednesday, but the trade fell through after the Mets backed out due to medical concerns. Gomez's addition to the Astros will give Houston a very solid outfield and lineup down the stretch. 

Fiers has been solid for the Brewers this year, posting a 3.89 ERA in 21 starts. He will solidify an already deep rotation for the Astros.

The Brewers officially announced the deal, and they will receive outfielders Domingo Santana and Brett Phillips, along with pitchers Josh Hader and Adrian Houser.


Report: Mets' concerns over Carlos Gomez's medicals nixes trade


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/30/2015) The Mets have reportedly backed out of a deal that would have sent Carlos Gomez to the New York from the Brewers. 

Sources tell FoxSports.com that the Mets had concerns over Gomez's medical records, and decided not to follow through on the proposed deal, which would have sent Wilmer Flores and Zack Wheeler to Milwaukee. 

Gomez spent time on the disabled list earlier this season with a hip injury, but he has played all but one game since June 23. However, it seems the Mets' staff did not like what they saw in the medical report. 

There had been thought that the Brewers saw something in Wheeler's medical charts, as he had Tommy John surgery in March. But reports are saying it's Gomez's injury history that has nixed the deal. 


Mets to acquire CF Carlos Gomez from Brewers


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) The Mets and Brewers have agreed on a deal that would send center fielder Carlos Gomez to New York, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman reports.

In exchange, the Mets would send right-hander Zack Wheeler and infielder Wilmer Flores to the Brewers, according to the New York Post

Gomez was originally signed by the Mets as an amateur free agent back in 2002. He played in 58 games with the Mets in 2007. He hit .232 that year.

In 2008, he was sent to Minnesota in the deal that sent Johan Santana to Queens. He was later traded to Milwaukee in a deal in 2009, and he has been there ever since. 

He was an All-Star in 2013 and 2014 and won a Gold Glove in '13. This year, he is batting .266 with eight home runs for the Brewers.

Gomez is currently signed through the 2016 season.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson has since denied reports of a trade, saying "there is no trade...it will not transpire," Heyman reports.

by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(7/29/2015) The Mets are currently involved in talks with the Brewers regarding center fielder Carlos Gomez, CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman confirms.

It is not presently known how serious or far along the talks are, and neither team has commented at this point.

by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Brewers willing to trade Carlos Gomez, Jean Segura


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2015) The Brewers are willing to trade center fielder Carlos Gomez and shortstop Jean Segura, a one person familiar with their thinking told CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. The source added it is somewhat likely they move both players.

The source said there is no way the Brewers will be able to keep Gomez long-term considering Yankees outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury's $153-million deal. Gomez will be a free agent after the 2016 season.

As for Segura, the source suspected he could be traded due to the rise of shortstop prospect Orlando Arcia. In fact, Arcia might be drawing more trade interest than Segura, per Heyman.

"He's the best player I saw in the minor leagues this year," one NL executive said of Arcia.


Brewers' Carlos Gomez wants to stay with team amid trade rumors


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/12/2015) Brewers right fielder Carlos Gomez understands that the sport he plays is a business at the end of the day, and that he could be traded at the snap of a finger. But Gomez, who will enter the final year of his contract next season, has been mentioned in trade rumors, per the Milwaukee Wisconsin Journal Sentinel.

Despite the rumors, Gomez says he doesn't get involved with the talks and leaves that to his agent, Scott Boras.

"I don't ask. Because if I ask, then I have it in my mind," he said. "It's not my problem. The only thing I have to care about is today, and I'm part of the Milwaukee Brewers. It's nothing I can control. If the Brewers want to trade me, they're going to do it. Even if I cry and say, 'Don't do it.' It's not something that I can control.

"The only thing I can control is to come here and give everything I have for the team."

Gomez has played the last six seasons of his career in Milwaukee and hopes that doesn't change any time soon.

"I don't think it's going to happen and I don't have this on my mind," said Gomez. "The only thing I have on my mind is play every day and give everything I have. Next year is my last year under contract, and I wish I could stay here for the rest of my career. You spend seven seasons with one team, I don't think you want to move. You want to stay here, especially with the group we have.

"I feel like I'm a Milwaukee Brewer. I don't look at myself as anything else."

Brewers CF Carlos Gomez likely to avoid disabled list


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2015) Not much has gone right for the Brewers this season, but it least appears their hopes that center fielder Carlos Gomez will avoid a stint on the disabled list is coming true.

Craig Counsell has stated that Gomez is "heading in the right direction" in his recovery from hip and groin issues and that he could be back in the lineup as early as Tuesday.

"It's just to get over the hump of this thing," Counsell said, per MLB.com. "They tested him pretty good today during batting practice, and then he'll have a day to recover. But we're moving in the right direction, so it's just best to wait though the off-day."

Gomez has missed all but three games since June 9.
