Brewers, Gomez Avoid Arbitration

GomezContract

The Brewers announced this evening that they have avoided arbitration with outfielder Carlos Gomez by agreeing to terms on a one-year contract.

It’s the second bit of news regarding Gomez today as he was officially named as a member of the Dominican Republic’s World Baseball Classic roster earlier this afternoon.

Brewers.com beat writer Adam McCalvy later tweeted out the value of the deal which is $4.3 million. The team doesn’t directly comment on the values of their contracts.

This contract, as with nearly every single arbitration-avoiding contract, represents a raise for Gomez. He made $1,962,000 in 2012 according to Baseball-Reference.com. As this is Gomez’ fourth time being eligible for arbitration, a significant jump had to be expected.

Gomez agreeing leaves three Brewers still eligible for arbitration.
