The 27-year-old hit .260 for Milwaukee last season with 19 homers, 51 RBIs and 37 stolen bases in 43 chances. He made $1,987,500.

Gomez can become a free agent after this season.

Three Brewers remain in arbitration, right-handers John Axford, Burke Badenhop and Marco Estrada. They are set to swap proposed arbitration salaries with the team Friday.
