Brewers Avoid Arbitration With Carlos Gomez

9:50pm: Gomez's will earn $1.5MM in 2011, tweets Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.

8:08pm: The Brewers have signed Carlos Gomez to a one-year deal, avoiding arbitration, according to a team press release.  The center fielder earned $1.1MM last season as a second-year arbitration-eligible Super Two.

Gomez, who celebrated his 25th birthday on December 4th, hit .247/.298/.357 in 97 games for the Brewers this season.  Just last week, the Brewers flirted with the idea of sending Gomez to the Braves in exchange for a young pitcher.

With Gomez back in the fold, Milwaukee now has five players that remain eligible for arbitration: Prince Fielder, Rickie Weeks, Kameron Loe, Manny Parra, and the recently-acquired Shaun Marcum.
