Carlos Gomez CF MIL 7 Months

Gomez (wrist) took about 60 swings Friday and said he will hit in the cage again Saturday and hopefully take batting practice, Fox Sports Wisconsin's Andrew Gruman reports.

It was originally reported that Gomez might miss a couple weeks with the wrist injury, but at the rate he's progressing, he could beat that timetable by a week, because one wouldn't expect there to be a big gap between being able to take batting practice and being able to start when battling a wrist injury.

Gomez's sore wrist is feeling much better, and he could return earlier than anticipated, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Gomez was expected to miss a week or two due to his wrist injury, and it appears possible he could return around the shorter end of that estimate. The Brewers could use Gomez back in the lineup, as they have lost eight straight games entering Thursday's contest.

Gomez will likely miss a couple weeks due to his wrist injury, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel's Tom Haudricourt reports.

The Brewers announced Tuesday that Gomez would be shut down for a week before resuming baseball drills, so in all likelihood, it will be about a two-week absence, although the Brewers will likely rush him back as soon as possible given the team's dwindling hopes of a Central Division crown. While Gomez is out, Gerardo Parra figures to see most of the starts against right-handed pitching, but Elian Herrera and Logan Schafer are also capable center fielders.

Gomez (wrist) is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Cubs.

Gomez left Sunday's game with a sore left wrist and missed Monday as a result. His injury isn't expected to keep him out of the lineup for a long period of time, but Gerardo Parra will start for him in center Tuesday and bat sixth for the Brewers.

Garza (wrist) is out of the lineup Monday against the Cubs.

Gomez was removed from Sunday's game after three innings with what was labeled left wrist soreness, and he'll sit Monday as Scooter Gennett takes over atop the order and Gerardo Parra mans center. The Brewers were expected to send Gomez for an evaluation with doctors in Chicago, and while the results have not been disclosed, the team can afford to give Gomez another day or two with active rosters now at 40 players.

Gomez (wrist) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Cubs, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Gomez left Sunday's game with wrist soreness and was seen being examined by the team's medical staff. While no definitive diagnosis has been made, Gomez is unlikely to play Monday, and his status for Tuesday's game could also be in jeopardy. Gomez will have the wrist examined by doctors in Chicago on Monday, after which a clearer diagnosis should be available.

Gomez left Sunday's game with left wrist soreness.

It's unclear what caused the injury to Gomez, but he went into the clubhouse with the trainer. He was replaced in center field by Gerardo Parra, and is considered day-to-day for now.

Gomez hit his 17th home run in a 2-for-5 effort Wednesday against the Giants.

It was the second home run in as many days for Gomez, who also tallied two hits in each contest. The 28-year-old had only hit two home runs since June 28, so the power outburst was overdue. Gomez has a .294/.355/.494 line with 17 home runs and 23 stolen bases, despite his month long slump.

Gomez hit his 16th home run of the year Tuesday, while going 2-for-4 at the plate with three RBI.

Prior to Tuesday's fine outing, Gomez had been mired in a terrible slump, going 3-for-31 in his previous seven games. Still, with 16 home runs, 22 stolen base and a .293/.355/.488 slash line in 420 at-bats this year, Gomez is as good as it gets for fantasy purposes.

Carlos Gomez went 0-for-4 with four strikeouts in a loss to the Rays on Tuesday.

Gomez shouldn't feel too bad -- Rays starter Alex Cobb racked up 12 strikeouts on the evening, so his teammates did plenty of swinging and missing as well. Gomez is now 0-for-12 with six strikeouts in his last three games, dropping his slash line to .297/.359/.494. He's too talented to be mired in a slump for much longer, so a multi-hit game should be in the cards soon.
