- Birth Place:
- Santiago, Dominican Republic
- Undrafted Signed by the New York Mets
— Player Notes
Advice: 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.Sun, Aug 2 Rotoworld
Advice: 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.Thu, Jul 30 Rotoworld
Advice: 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.

Advice: 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.Rotoworld
Advice: 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.

Advice: 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.Rotoworld
Advice: 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.

Advice: 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.

Advice: 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.

Advice: 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.
