Brewers re-signed INF Hector Gomez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

Gomez hit just .196/.238/.255 in 406 plate appearances this past season at the Triple-A level. The 25-year-old Dominican shortstop was once regarded as a fairly promising prospect, but that's all over now.

Hector Gomez suffered a serious groin injury recently during Dominican Winter League play and could miss much of the 2013 season.

"He will probably have surgery in the next couple of days," said Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash. "He has had a history of groin injuries and it flared up again. We just don't know the extent of it. Is it a fourth-month (absence) or eight months?" Gomez, 24, was claimed off waivers from the Rockies in June and had been slated to start the season at Double-A.

Brewers signed INF Hector Gomez to a minor league contract.

He'll also get an invite to spring training. Gomez, who was claimed off waivers from the Rockies in June, was outrighted off the Brewers' 40-man roster earlier this month.

Brewers sent INF Hector Gomez outright to Triple-A Nashville.

The move clears him from the 40-man roster. The 24-year-old was once considered a promising prospect, but the Rockies gave up on him in June and he was limited to just 23 games at the High-A level this season due to injury.

Brewers recalled SS Hector Gomez from High-A Brevard County.

Gomez was once very highly thought of, but he's battled injuries the last few years and batted an ugly .105/.179/.211 in 23 games as a 24-year-old at the High-A level this season. Needless to say, he's not close to being major league-ready.

Brewers claimed INF Hector Gomez off waivers from the Rockies; optioned him to High-A Brevard County.

Gomez, 24, was once considered a top prospect, but injuries have limited him to just 216 games since the start of the 2008 season. The Brewers will hope for better luck.

The Rockies have placed Hector Gomez on waivers.

Gomez is often injured and owns a weak .306 career on-base percentage in the minor leagues, but he's just 24 years old and could draw interest from other teams.

Rockies transferred INF Hector Gomez from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for Wil Nieves on the 40-man roster. Gomez hasn't played all season due to a groin injury.
Fri, May 25, 2012 05:07:00 PM

Rockies placed INF Hector Gomez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 26, with a groin strain.

Gomez was diagnosed with a strained right groin in early March and wasn't able to get back on track by the end of spring training. He was a longshot to make the Rockies' 25-man roster anyway and will likely be sent to the Triple-A level once he's healthy.

Hector Gomez was diagnosed Monday with a strained right groin and is out indefinitely.

Gomez suffered the injury during a Cactus League game last Thursday against the Cubs. He was a longshot to make the Rockies' 25-man roster anyway, but the groin strain now ensures that he'll open 2012 in the minors.

Hector Gomez injured his groin Thursday during the Rockies' Cactus League game against the Cubs.

Gomez suffered the injury while running out of the batter's box on a ninth-inning double. The Rockies can't be sure yet how much time the infielder will miss.

Hector Gomez was scratched from Tuesday's lineup due to back spasms.

It's the second time in the last four days he's had to be scratched. With Troy Tulowitzki still out, Thomas Field replaced Gomez at shortstop.

Rockies recalled INF Hector Gomez from Double-A Tulsa.

Once considered a top prospect in the organization, the 23-year-old batted .235/.272/.416 with 14 homers, 50 RBI, 16 stolen bases and a .689 OPS over 453 plate appearances at the Double-A level this season. He will function as insurance at shortstop the rest of the way.
Fri, Sep 16, 2011 06:55:00 PM

Hector Gomez collected a double, a triple and two RBI after taking over at shortstop Saturday to lead the Rockies to an 8-6 win over a Brewers split-squad.

Gomez played the biggest role as the Rockies scored six runs in the seventh and eighth innings to complete a comeback. Troy Tulowitzki probably doesn't have anything to worry about just yet, but Gomez is a fine shortstop prospect and potentially valuable trade bait for the Rockies.
