Carlos Argelis Gómez Pena, nicknamed "Go-Go", (born December 4, 1985, in Santiago, Dominican Republic) is a Major League Baseball outfielder for the Milwaukee Brewers. Gómez has consistently been regarded as one of the fastest players in MLB.

At just 16 years of age, Gómez signed with the Mets as an international free agent on July 27, 2002. Along with Fernando Martínez, Gómez was considered one of the top New York Mets outfield prospects, and was considered to be a five-tool prospect. While they were teammates, Mets shortstop José Reyes, who led the National League in stolen bases and triples for multiple seasons, said that Gómez is faster than he is. In fact, while he and Reyes were teammates with the Mets, he routinely beat Reyes in foot races during Spring training 2007.

In 2006, he played for the Double-A Binghamton Mets of the Eastern League, and was the co-winner of the Sterling Award. He finished second in the league with 41 stolen bases and fifth in the league with eight triples. He also batted .281 (121-430) with 53 runs scored, 24 doubles, seven home runs and 48 runs batted in.
