Profile: Signed by the Brewers in May of 2017 out of the Dominican Republic, Gomez was assigned to the DSL and made his pro debut there, pitching for Milwaukee’s co-op team which they shared with the Cleveland Indians.  A lanky left-hander with room to add plenty of muscle, Gomez struggled with his command at times in his first season.  His inability to consistently locate his pitches led to some hard-hit balls as he finished the season with opposing hitters posting a .303 batting average against him.

2017:  Gomez made his professional debut in 2017, pitching for the Indians/Brewers co-op team in the Dominican Summer League.  He appeared in 16 games for them, starting ten, and finished the year with a record of 1-4 to go along with a 5.85 earned run average.
