Carlos Gomez suited up for the Houston Astros earlier this season. However, he was eventually cut by the team due to his lackluster performance. But this MLB news suggests that he immediately found a new team because of his recent signing with the Texas Rangers.
According to TR Sullivan of MLB.com, Rangers signed Gomez to a minor-league deal and assigned him to Triple-A-Round Rock.
Carlos is already 30-years-old, but the Rangers’ general manager believe that he still have a lot left in the tank.
“Sometimes things just don’t work out the way acquiring clubs intend, and obviously we’re taking a chance on him, thinking he’s better than his most recent performance in Houston,” general manager Jon Daniels said on Associated Press.
Daniels is hoping to have Carlos on the team’s major league lineup sooner than later. He added that the outfielder will first suit up in the minor league roster of the Rangers in the Round Rock Express.
Carlos Gomez might play 3 or so games in the minor league lineup of the rangers. This is based on the MLB news report by league insider Jon Heyman.
The former Astros’ outfielder did not have a memorable season with his old team. He only batted .210 with five home runs for the Astros this year. But this MLB news is a good thing for Gomez so that he could have a fresh start with his new team.
Carlos Gomez should get it done this time in order to resurrect his once all-star status in the league. He is a two-time all-star in the league back in 2013 and 2014.
