Carlos Gomez, Brewers agree at $4.3 million
Outfielder avoided arbitration, doubled salary
Outfielder Carlos Gomez and the Milwaukee Brewers have agreed to a $4.3 million, one-year contract, more than doubling his salary.
The 27-year-old hit .260 for Milwaukee last season with 19 homers, 51 RBIs and 37 stolen bases in 43 chances. He made $1,987,500.
Gomez can become a free agent after this season.
Three Brewers remain in arbitration, right-handers John Axford, Burke Badenhop and Marco Estrada. They are set to swap proposed arbitration salaries with the team Friday.
