Gomez traded to Astros after Mets deal falls through

Posted: Updated:

The Astros have added another bat to their lineup as they make a push for the postseason by acquiring two-time All-Star outfielder Carlos Gomez from, the Milwaukee Brewers.
   Houston, which also received right-hander Mike Fiers in the deal, sent four prospects to the Brewers: left-hander Josh Hader, right-hander Adrian Houser and outfielders Brett Phillips and Domingo Santana.
   The 29-year-old Gomez is hitting .262 with eight homers and 43 RBIs in 74 games for the Brewers this season. He is making $8 million this season and $9 million in 2016, then can become a free agent.
   Milwaukee general manager Doug Melvin said a trade fell through Wednesday that would have sent Gomez to the New York Mets for infielder Wilmer Flores and injured pitcher Zack Wheeler.
