Gomez was to be traded to the New York Mets, but the trade fell through.
“There is no trade”, Alderson said. What happened during the Mets-Padres game in New York on Wednesday was worse.
This has been a weird week of trades, as more than one deal has been prematurely reported.
Gomez, who won a Gold Glove in 2013, is a nine-year veteran coming off a career-best season last year, when he hit.
Gomez, who was placed on the market because of his looming free agency after the 2016 season, was extremely emotional when talking about the trade. 262 with a. 328 on base percentage, 20 doubles, eight home runs and 43 RBIs. “It was tough with Carlos”. Collins said he sent Flores back out to his position in the eighth because he wasn’t informed of any trade taking place.
Now that Hamels is gone, CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman wrote the Yankees will talk to the Tigers about Price, though they are not necessarily considered a favorite to get him.
“And his at-bats are solid, he’s played well in left field; we couldn’t be happier with what Michael has done over the time he’s been here”.
Over his two major-league seasons with the Mets, Wheeler holds an 18-16 record over 49 starts with a 3.50 ERA, 271 strikeouts and 125 walks. Houston will go into the stretch run with a rotation of Kazmir, Fiers, Dallas Keuchel, Collin McHugh and Lance McCullers, with Scott Feldman serving as depth. Multiple baseball news outlets had reported that the New York Mets had agreed to trade INF Wilmer Flores and pitcher Zack Wheeler to the Milwaukee Brewers in exchange for OF Carlos Gomez. In four seasons as an outfielder in Houston’s minor league system, Phillips hit. 298 with an OPS of.862.
After the game, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson blamed social media for “getting ahead of the facts” and then having an “adverse effect” on Flores.
Wilmer Flores got a mental health day Thursday. I’ll repeat the tweet, just so you all can see the words “pending medical clearance” clearly written within it. “I’m playing, and I feel really sexy”. “They were fine with it”.
This happens when you have team and everybody plays hard and everybody gives everything they have every single day. “Everyone has to make those decisions”.
Alderson shut the door on the team revisiting Gomez before Friday’s trade deadline. We have a chance to win next year. Collins said he believes the 23-year-old will recover from the odd near-trade and reassured him that he is wanted by many teams, including the Mets, because he is a good player.
