News: 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.

"I actually think he might have aggravated it late [Tuesday] night, on a play near the wall," Hurdle said. "And he just couldn't get loose today. We didn't feel it made any sense for him to push it."
