Social media went crazy earlier tonight after reports came out that Carlos Gomez was heading to the Mets, but it looks like it was all rumors. New York general manager Sandy Alderson told Mets writers that “there is no trade” and that a deal “will not transpire.” Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports points out that the Brewers were probably uncomfortable with Zack Wheeler‘s medical history coming off Tommy John Surgery and didn’t want to take any chances in a trade of this magnitude.

Most logical explanation is that #Brewers were uncomfortable with Wheeler’s medical coming off Tommy John. Players were agreed upon.— Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) July 30, 2015
