Carlos Gomez has been playing well with Triple-A Syracuse, hitting .274/.336/.479 with five homers and nine doubles in 32 games (117 at-bats). But it doesn't seem like the Mets are close to calling him up.
And with Gomez having a June 1 opt-out, SNY's Andy Martino reports that the Mets "would have to have a specific need to call him up in that timeframe." If the Mets don't have that specific need, Martino notes it's "easy to see him going elsewhere."
The Mets have some roster decisions on the horizon, including having to clear someone off the 25-man roster when Jed Lowrie returns from the IL, which could be as early as Tuesday against the Nationals in Washington, D.C.
New York is currently carrying two right-handed hitting backup outfielders -- and with Keon Broxton and Juan Lagares being redundant, it can be argued that the Mets only need one of them. So it seems the only way the Mets would have a "specific need" to call up the right-handed hitting Gomez is if they suddenly lost two outfielders -- whether via a DFA, injury, etc.
Broxton and Lagares are redundant, and it can be argued that the Mets only need one right-handed hitting backup outfielder on the roster.
While Broxton has struggled badly and it could be tempting to give Gomez a shot, Broxton was recently acquired for prospects and is under team control through the 2022 season. As much as he might be the weakest link right now, it's hard to see them cutting bait at this point.
So as solid as Gomez has been in Triple-A and as poor as Broxton has been in the majors, the Mets/Gomez reunion winding up on the big league stage isn't looking very likely right now.
