Gomez cleared waivers Wednesday and elected to become a free agent.

Gomez reverted to a bench role over the past week with his last start coming June 23. The 33-year-old finished June with a .170/.231/.209 slash line in 19 games and saw his workload dissipate with Michael Conforto taking over the everyday role in center field. Noah Syndergaard (hamstring) was activated off the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Gomez is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Giants, Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports reports.
Since joining the big club May 17, Gomez has beaten out Juan Lagares for the everyday center-field gig, but his grip on the job may be loosening. Though Gomez has historically offered more offensive upside than Lagares, he's largely failed to produce for the Mets, logging a .182/.262/.291 slash line across 62 plate appearance. Lagares will enter the lineup for the day game after the night game and could see his opportunities increase if Gomez's bat doesn't get going soon.

Gomez took Wander Suero deep in the eighth inning for what proved to be the game-winning runs. It was his first home run of the season, and he also provided his first stolen base of the campaign after reaching base on a leadoff single in the fifth inning. With the Mets currently missing Jeff McNeil (hamstring), Michael Conforto (concussion) and Brandon Nimmo (neck), Gomez has made four straight starts in the outfield and should remain a near everyday player until the team can get healthier.
Gomez will start in right field and bat sixth Thursday against the Nationals, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.
Gomez will draw his fourth straight start and appears set to handle an everyday role for the foreseeable future with Jeff McNeil (hamstring) joining fellow outfielders Michael Conforto (concussion) and Brandon Nimmo (neck) on the injured list Thursday. Per Matt Ehalt of Yahoo Sports, manager Mickey Callaway acknowledged that he expects Gomez, Rajai Davis and J.D. Davis to see most of the action in the outfield, notably omitting defensive maven Juan Lagares.
Gomez went 0-for-3 with a strikeout in Friday's loss to the Marlins.
Playing right field and batting sixth, Gomez looked like much the same hitter who stumbled to a .634 OPS last year with the Rays. The 33-year-old still has some modest power-speed potential, but his stay with the Mets could last only until Michael Conforto (concussion) and Jeff McNeil (abdomen) get healthy.
Gomez will have his contract selected by the Mets from Triple-A Syracuse on Friday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.
Gomez was pulled from Syracuse's game Thursday after Michael Conforto was diagnosed with a concussion, so this move was expected. The veteran outfielder slashed .208/.298/.336 with nine home runs and 12 stolen bases in 118 games for the Rays last season, mostly playing right field. Juan Lagares and Keon Broxton also figure to remain in the mix for playing time while Conforto is sidelined.
