Can we undo this Johan thing?
[Carlos] Gomez was due to become a free agent following the season after his final arbitration year. He’s currently on a one-year, $4.3 million deal. He’s also coming off a career year where he hit .260/.305/.463 with career highs for home runs (19) and stolen bases (37). Even with last year’s improvements he’s still only a career .247/.294/.379 hitter.
It’s also worth noting, though, that Gomez is still only 27 years old and won’t turn 28 until December…. Two tweets have provided us more details on the extension.
First one is from Ken Rosenthal:
#Brewers announce Carlos Gomez extension as three years, covering 2014 to ‘16.

Adam McCalvy also has the details on the financial side:
#Brewers announce 3-year extension for Gomez. Source says he gets $7mm in ‘14, $8mm in ‘15, $9mm in ‘16. Story at the site.

If you add in the $4.3 million that Gomez is making this year, he will be due $28.3 million through 2016.
for his generous support.
