During the Triple-A Syracuse Mets game tonight, OF Carlos Gomez left midway through the game, which could mean it's time for a call-up.
Michael Conforto was diagnosed with a concussion following a bad collision with Robinson Cano during the Mets' loss to the Nats on Thursday afternoon. Concussion protocol will be seven days for Conforto, and the Mets may be looking for some reinforcements.
Granted, SNY's Andy Martino points out that Gomez left in the seventh inning of a 12-2 game. While he points out it is possible he could be on the move, it won't be happening tonight.
The Mets already have some extra outfielders on the bench, but with Keon Broxton struggling at the plate and Dominic Smith being primarily used as a first baseman despite his work in the outfield last season, a spot for Gomez could be coming.
The Mets have noted that J.D. Davis will get the start in left field to kick off the series opener against the Marlins on Friday night. But Davis is more of a corner infielder than an outfielder, so Gomez could be taking over that role if he gets the call.
Gomez has been in Triple-A since signing with the Mets back in March. And he is enjoying success in his Syracuse stay, hitting .268/.328/.480 with five homers and 19 RBI. In his last 10 games, though, he's hitting .361 with four homers and nine RBI.
The 33-year-old has a June 1 opt out as part of his contract with the team.
