Revolution to Add Goalkeeper Tomas Gomez on Trial?

With the Desert Diamond Cup starting tomorrow, are the Revs on the verge of finding their third goalkeeper? Columbus Crew beat writer Adam Jardy has the news.

With only breakout 2014 starter Bobby Shuttleworth and longtime veteran Brad Knighton on the New England Revolution depth chart, the Revs might be adding rookie trialist Tomas Gomez per Columbus Dispatch's beat writer Adam Jardy:

Gomez was the 60th overall pick (18th of the 3rd Round) out of Georgetown University, and was a teammate of current Revs midfielder Steve Neumann who graduated last year and was drafted by the Revs in 2014 as well as rookie Tyler Rudy who's also with the Revs for preseason.

According to the above link from Georgetown's Athletics website, Gomez is the all-time leader for shutouts in Hoyas history with 36, posting 12 in 2013 and 10 in 2014. Gomez was an all-Big East player three times, including Keeper of the Year once and has spent time in the United States U20 player pool. Gomez also started as Orlando City's U-23 (PDL) keeper in a 3-0 U.S. Open Cup loss to the Portland Timbers last year.

We'll see if an updated roster for the Desert Diamond Classic includes Gomez' name on it. If the Revs wish to acquire Gomez from the Columbus Crew there would have to be a trade, possibly for just allocation money, as the Crew own Gomez' rights after selecting him in the SuperDraft.
