Carlos Gomez went 2-for-6 with an RBI double and a three-run home run in Tuesday's rout of the Yankees.
Gomez knocked in the Astros' second run in a five-run first inning. He was the impetus behind a benches-clearing staredown after flying out in the sixth inning, when the Astros were up 9-0. The Yankees didn't like that he expressed his frustration in failing to get a hit. Gomez responded by blasting a three-run home run in the seventh inning to make it 15-0. He hasn't done much hitting otherwise since joining the Astros, owning a .191/.226/.292 batting line with two home runs and eight RBI in 95 plate appearances. Aug 25 - 10:43 PM

Carlos Gomez is not in the Astros' lineup Wednesday due to a sore knee.

Gomez banged his knee while making a great catch at the wall during Tuesday's game. Manager A.J. Hinch said the outfielder could have played, so it appears they're just being cautious here.

Carlos Gomez went 1-for-4 with a stolen base as the Astros lost 3-1 to the Giants on Tuesday.

Carlos Gomez went 1-for-4 with a two-run single in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Diamondbacks.

Gomez took an 0-for-5 in his first game with the Astros on Friday, but he's come through in each of the last two games, notching three hits on Saturday and a two-run single on Sunday. He hit .262/.328/.423 with the Brewers, but if he's able to stay healthy, we could see a rejuvenated hitter as the Astros battle for a playoff spot.
Aug 2 - 5:39 PM

Astros acquired OF Carlos Gomez and RHP Mike Fiers from the Brewers for OF Domingo Santana, OF Brett Phillips, LHP Josh Hader, RHP Adrian Houser and international bonus slot #76.

The dynamic 29-year-old outfielder was nearly traded to the Mets on Wednesday evening before the deal fell apart due to financial issues. Their loss, is a huge gain for the Astros though who will add another monster bat to an already dangerous lineup. In 74 games with the Brewers this season, Gomez was hitting .262/.328/.423 with eight homers, 43 RBI and seven stolen bases.
Jul 30 - 8:08 PM

Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports that the Astros have acquired Carlos Gomez and Mike Fiers from the Brewers.

The Brewers will net several prospects in the deal. Gomez was nearly traded to the Mets on Wednesday before the deal broke down over financial issues, and it appears that their loss is the Astros gain. It's a very strong move for the Astros and should put them as the favorites to capture the American League West.
Jul 30 - 7:37 PM

According to Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, the Carlos Gomez trade to the Mets broke down primarily over financial issues.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reported late Wednesday night that the proposal fell apart because of Gomez's hip, but agent Scott Boras and Brewers GM Doug Melvin are vehemently rejecting that angle. It should be noted that there's posturing going on here from all sides -- the Brewers want other teams to believe Gomez is fully healthy, and questioning the Mets' desire to spend is an easy alibi. The 29-year-old center fielder is still very much on the trade block, but talks have obviously been called off with the Mets.
Jul 30 - 11:27 AM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Mets backed out of the proposed trade to acquire Carlos Gomez from the Brewers due to concern over his hip issue.

Scott Boras, the agent for Gomez, has stated that his client is "injury-free" and that he has "no problem whatsoever" with his hip. The Mets will have to continue shopping elsewhere to acquire the big bat they would like to add to the outfield.
Jul 30 - 12:17 AM

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson clarified late Wednesday that a trade for Carlos Gomez from the Brewers will not be happening.

The deal had been agreed upon by both sides, pending physicals, so the most logical explanation is that something came back with the physical of Zack Wheeler that the Brewers didn't like. Well, it was fun while it lasted. The Mets are likely to turn their attention to other outfield targets once again, perhaps Yoenis Cespedes of the Tigers or Justin Upton from San Diego.
Jul 29 - 11:33 PM

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said late Wednesday that the rumored deal to acquire Carlos Gomez from the Brewers "will not transpire".

The reported deal had the Mets sending Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores to the Brewers in exchange for the outfielder. The deal was reportedly pending physicals, and still could be, but it doesn't sound as if it's a sure thing at this point. Stay tuned.
Jul 29 - 11:13 PM

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Mets have agreed to a deal with the Brewers to acquire Carlos Gomez.

As rumored, Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores will be headed back to Milwaukee in the trade. The deal is done pending physicals, so don't expect an official announcement to take place until Thursday. Gomez returns to the organization where he began his big league career as a 21-year-old in 2007.
