Rosenthal: Updated look at why the Mets-Brewers deal collapsed
So, what exactly happened in the proposed deal between the New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers that fell apart in the final stages Wednesday night? Why is Carlos Gomez still a Brewer, and why are Wilmer Flores and Zack Wheeler still Mets?
FOX Sports Insider Ken Rosenthal offers some additional insight:
#Brewers GM Doug Melvin: “Carlos Gomez, in my mind, is healthy. There’s no issue. We don’t feel there’s anything wrong with his hip.”— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 30, 2015
As I reported, #Mets had concern over hip issue. Gomez missed time in June with reported problem; some say it was more groin-related.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 30, 2015
Gomez’s agent, Scott Boras, says Gomez has never seen a hip doctor or had hip issue. #Mets believe scrutiny was justified and warranted.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 30, 2015
