Gomez exited Sunday's game with a facial contusion and the team does not think he suffered a concussion.

Gomez took a mid-90s fastball off the helmet Sunday, which knocked him off his feet and forced him out of the game. Upon further review, the outfielder appears to have avoided a concussion, as the team is calling it a mere bruise to the face at this time. This potentially leaves the door open for a return to the lineup in Monday's series opener against the Tigers.

Gomez exited Sunday's game after taking a fastball directly off the helmet, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Gomez was actually very fortunate, as he was hit right above the helmet's ear flap, and the helmet absorbed most of the blow. After getting back to his feet, Gomez was forced to exit, and was replaced in center field by Gerardo Parra. Consider the speedy outfielder day-to-day, as he'll likely have to pass standard concussion tests before returning to the lineup.

Gomez returned the the leadoff spot Saturday and went 2-for-3 in the blowout loss to the Mets on Saturday.

Gomez has been moving from the leadoff spot to the clean-up spot and has been changing his approach based on his lineup order. His last two home runs have come while he's a clean-up hitter and he appears to be spraying the ball with single out of the leadoff spot. It's definitely a situation worth monitoring going forward.

As part of an adjusted batting order Monday, Gomez was used as the Brewers' cleanup hitter while Gerardo Parra, Ryan Braun, and Adam Lind were penciled into the first three spots.

Gomez (hip) is back in the lineup Sunday against the Cubs.

Gomez had been dealing with a minor hip strain, forcing him to miss three straight games in favor of Gerardo Parra. The 29-year-old outfielder had been 5-for-21 at the dish in five games since returning from the DL due to a hamstring injury before dealing with this latest ailment. He'll now resume his regular role, batting leadoff and starting in center field.
