Carlos Gomez

Carlos Argelis Gómez Pena (born December 4, 1985, in Santiago, Dominican Republic) is a Major League Baseball outfielder for the Minnesota Twins. Along with Fernando Martínez, Gómez was considered one of the top New York Mets outfield prospects, and is considered to be a five-tool prospect. While they were teammates, Mets shortstop José Reyes, who led the National League in stolen bases and triples for multiple seasons, said that Gómez is faster than he is. In fact, while he and Reyes were teammates with the Mets, he routinely beat Reyes in foot races during Spring training 2007. At just 16 years of age, Gómez signed with the Mets as an international free agent on July 27, 2002. In 2006, he played for the Double-A Binghamton Mets of the Eastern League, and was the co-winner of the Sterling Award. He finished second in the league with 41 stolen bases and fifth in the league with eight triples. He also batted .281 (121-430) with 53 runs scored, 24 doubles, seven home runs and 48 runs batted in. Gómez started the 2007 season with the Triple-A New Orleans Zephyrs. Playing every day, by the second week of May he led the Pacific Coast League with 17 stolen bases in 36 games and hit .286
