Mets, Brewers Trade Broke Down Over Medical Records

Jul 30, 2015 6:53 AM

The rumored trade between the New York Mets and Milwaukee Brewers involving Carlos Gomez, Zack Wheeler and Wilmer Flores broke down over medical records.

New York pulled the plug, according to a source. Multiple reports have cited concern over Gomez's hip.

Scott Boras, Gomez's agent, disputed any medical issue with Gomez, though.

"He's in first-class physical condition without issue," Boras said. "We monitor our players closely. If there was ever an issue with him, we would have him seen by experts in a particular area. He has not been seen by any outside physicians this year. Other than a hamstring issue, he's been in great physical health. He plans on playing in the big leagues for the next 15 years."

Wheeler underwent Tommy John surgery in March, but a source told ESPN.com that his medical information played no role in the deal disintegrating.
