Carlos Gomez blasted a solo homer on the first pitch of the ballgame on Monday, helping to power the Brewers to an 8-3 victory over the Diamondbacks.

The free-swinging outfielder jumped all over a Mike Bolsinger fastball to begin the game, smashing it over the center field wall to get the Brewers started off right. He reached in all five of his plate appearances in the game, going 2-for-2 with three walks, two runs scored and three RBI. He has been one of the top performing outfielders in fantasy leagues over the first month-plus of the season, slashing .291/.360/.567 with eight homers, 20 RBI and four stolen bases.

David Wright was given a pain-killing injection for his neck injury on Tuesday.

The veteran third baseman revealed to reporters Monday that he's been diagnosed with a herniated disk in his neck and he is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Tuesday night. The hope is this pain-killing injection will help him avoid the 15-day disabled list.

Matt Duffy (wrist) is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Braves.

Bryce Harper (knee) is absent from Tuesday's lineup against the Phillies.

Harper suffered a right knee contusion when he was hit by a pitch on Monday and will get a day of rest. Consider him day-to-day. Jayson Werth will slide over to right field in his absence while Clint Robinson will get a start in left.

Carlos Carrasco will be activated from the disabled list to start Thursday against the Royals.

Carrasco, out since late-April with a hamstring strain, tossed four innings of one-run ball with six strikeouts in his lone minor league rehab start with Double-A Akron on Saturday. He'll be limited to around 80 pitches in his return to action.

Giancarlo Stanton (side) is out of the Marlins' lineup again Tuesday against the Pirates.

Ketel Marte (thumb) is expected to be activated from the disabled list next Monday.

That's the first day he's eligible. Marte, who has been out since May 21 with a left thumb sprain, will begin a minor league rehab assignment on Tuesday. He's expected to play a total of five games through Saturday before rejoining the Mariners. The 22-year-old was batting .276/.307/.378 with five steals in 40 games prior to the injury.
May 31 - 2:11 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) could begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

D'Arnaud, who has been out since late April with a strained right rotator cuff, resumed baseball activities last week in Florida. The big test will be game action. Assuming he can avoid setbacks, the Mets could send Kevin Plawecki to Triple-A upon his return and keep Rene Rivera as the backup.

Carlos Gomez will bat seventh in his return from the disabled list Tuesday against the Diamondbacks.

This is where he batted most of the time before hitting the disabled list with a bruised left rib cage earlier this month. The 30-year-old returns to a disappointing .182/.238/.248 batting line.
