Gomez has been a successful major leaguer over five seasons. He was the youngest player in the NL when he made his debut with the Mets in 2007. He was traded to the Twins in the Johan Santana deal and was the Twins everyday center fielder for two seasons. For the last two years he has been a utility outfielder and pinch hitter for the Brewers. He was an important part of their playoff run last year, even as a bench player.
He should fight for an everyday outfield spot this year, and should see the 90-plus games he saw the last two years. Gomez is from Santiago, Dominican Republic.
