Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com reports that the Brewers and Carlos Gomez have avoided arbitration by agreeing on a one-year deal worth around $2 million.

Gomez earned $1.5 million last season while batting .225/.276/.403 with eight home runs, 24 RBI, 16 stolen bases and a .679 OPS over 258 plate appearances. The 26-year-old was arbitration-eligible for the third time this offseason, but because he was a Super Two player, he remains under team control 2013.

Gomez has failed to emerge as a legitimate everyday player, but his elite defense and speed makes him plenty useful. He had an .857 OPS and six homers over 95 plate appearances against southpaws last season, so serving on the lesser side of a platoon with Nyjer Morgan at least plays to his strengths.
