Houston, We Have A Problem and His Name Is Carlos Gomez

Last year the Houston Astros traded for Carlos Gomez with the hopes that he would bolster their offense for a playoff push. This trade included top prospects, Brett PhillipsDomingo SantanaJosh Hader, and Adrian Houser for Carlos Gomez and Mike Fiers on July 30th, 2015. Since that date, Carlos Gomez has done nothing but disappoint Astros fans. You can’t blame the Astros’ front office for this move considering Gomez was a star prior to his arrival in Houston.

 

Before joining the Astros, Gomez spent six years with the Milwaukee Brewers. In his last three seasons with the Brewers, he had a .276 BA, 66 home runs (22 per season), 197 RBIs (65 per season), 247 runs (82 per season), and 111 stolen bases (37 per season). Since joining the Astros, he has played 68 games, with a .228 BA, 4 home runs (average of 9 per season), 17 RBIs (average of 40 per season), 25 runs (average of 60 per season), and 12 stolen bases (average of 29 per season). Since the start of 2016, he is striking out 33% of the time and only walking 3.9% of the time, compared to a career strikeout rate of 22.7% and a walk rate of 5.7%. Based on these frightening statistics, it could be time for the Houston Astros to bench Gomez or even send him packing.
