UPDATE: (10:08 p.m. PST on Wednesday:
The reportedly agreed upon deal between the Mets and Brewers fell through after the Mets reportedly had concerns about the health of center fielder Carlos Gomez's hip.
Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal was the first to report the news.
Agent Scott Boras says Gomez is “injury-free. He’s playing every day. I have our players examined rigorously. He has no problem whatsoever.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 30, 2015
Boras adds: “He has not seen a doctor for anything other than his hamstring issue. He is getting no treatment, has not asked for treatment.”— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 30, 2015
#Brewers GM Melvin: “We’re disappointed the deal did not get done. We felt very confident it would get done. We weren’t fearful of it not.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 30, 2015
UPDATE (8:00 p.m. PST on Wednesday):
Following the Mets' loss to the Padres Wednesday night, general manager Sandy Alderson met with the media and shot down the report of a deal with the Brewers.
Sandy Alderson insists "there is no trade. Unfortunately, social media got ahead of the facts." Says Gomez deal "will not transpire." #Mets— Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) July 30, 2015
Alderson asked point blank multiple times if a trade with the Brewers will happen. "No. Nothing at all." Won't get into specifics of why.— Anthony DiComo (@AnthonyDiComo) July 30, 2015
The Mets have officially acquired star center fielder Carlos Gomez from the Brewers, according to multiple reports.
Gomez, 29, is a two-time All-Star that's spent the majority of his career with the Brewers.
He is hitting .266 this year, including eight home runs and 43 RBI.
Gomez made his major league debut in 2007 with none other than the New York Mets.
That package was first suggested by Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.
