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

Date:

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.

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.

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.

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.
Jul 29 - 9:12 PM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Brewers have discussed a deal involving Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores in exchange for Carlos Gomez.

Rosenthal again cautions that there are no indications that a deal between the two clubs is close, just that talks are ongoing. The Brewers a reportedly seeking a "top four" starter in return for Gomez, and with the Mets wealth of young pitching they certainly have the pieces to make a deal work. It just depends on what they are willing to give up.
Jul 29 - 8:25 PM

Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports reports that the Mets are "pushing hard" to acquire Carlos Gomez from the Brewers.

The Mets are reportedly close to making a big trade for an outfielder, and Gomez would certainly be everything that they are looking for, a dynamic talent who is still relatively inexpensive and under team control through the 2016 season. Stay tuned, as the Mets appear poised to make some noise before the evening is through.
Jul 29 - 7:59 PM

Carlos Gomez is drawing serious trade interest from the Rangers and Indians, per Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

Those teams are not currently in line for postseason spots and many expect them to be sellers at the July 31 trade deadline, but a player with the profile of Gomez is going to get attention from all sorts if he's truly made available by the Brewers. The 29-year-old center fielder is earning $8 million this season and is under contract for only $9 million next season. He's a summer removed from a 23-homer, 34-steal campaign.

Carlos Gomez is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off. Gerardo Parra is filling in for Gomez in center field, while Khris Davis is manning left.
Jul 26 - 12:54 PM

Carlos Gomez reached base all four times he came to the plate against the Indians on Tuesday, finishing 1-for-1 with an RBI, a run scored and three walks.

In a strange twist, the usually walk-averse outfielder has now walked 11 times in his last nine games after walking just 10 times all season through July 6. Although most leagues don't count walks, it's a good sign for fantasy owners that Gomez seems to be seeing the ball well these days. The RBI single pushed his line to .271/.338/.442 with 42 RBI and 41 runs scored on the year.
Jul 21 - 11:22 PM

Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports reports that the Orioles have also talked to the Brewers about acquiring Carlos Gomez.

The O's appear to be in the market for an upgrade in the outfield and are looking at all possible options to find the best fit. Gomez, unlike Justin Upton who they have also expressed interest in, is signed through the 2016 season rather than being an impending free agent. It's unclear if the O's have the potential pieces needed to require such an impact bat however.
Jul 19 - 5:19 PM

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Brewers are "willing to trade" Carlos Gomez.

Heyman suggests that a potential deal of Gomez would be "born of pragmatism," as the club doesn't anticipate having a chance to re-sign the outfielder to a long-term contract. Gomez is making $8 million in 2015 and is set to earn $9 million in 2016 before hitting free agency that winter. He's not having a great season (.273/.322/.450) but would surely bring a boatload in return if the Brewers do indeed decide to trade him.
