Carlos Gomez will appeal his suspension Monday

9 Comments

Carlos Gomez was suspended for three games as part of the Easter brawl with the Pirates, but the Brewers center fielder appealed and has been playing since.

Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Gomez will officially go in front of MLB and appeal the suspension Monday, with a ruling expected to follow shortly after that. So he’ll either have the suspension reduced or it’ll stay at three games, and either way he’ll have to begin serving it next week.

While awaiting his appeal hearing Gomez has played 10 games, hitting .262 with two homers, four doubles, three steals, and an .840 OPS while the Brewers have gone 6-4.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
