5:39pm: The Brewers announced that they have reached agreement with Carlos Gomez on a one-year deal to avoid arbitration.  The centerfielder is represented by Scott Boras.  Terms of the deal are not yet known but Matt Swartz projected that he would earn $3.4MM through the arbitration process.

Gomez, 27, will be eligible for free agency at the end of the year.  The outfielder had his best season to date in 2012, posting a slash line of .260/.305/.463 with 19 homers in 452 plate appearances.

Milwaukee now has three players still eligible for arbitration in right-handers John Axford, Burke Badenhop, and Marco Estrada.
