Brewers activated OF Carlos Gomez from the 15-day disabled list.
Gomez has been on the shelf since April 16 with a strained right hamstring. His return should be a tremendous boost to a Brewers offense that has struggled to score runs in his absence. Before hitting the DL, Gomez was hitting just .235/.257/.441 with one homer and six RBI in 34 at-bats. May 2 - 11:21 AM

Date:

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke confirmed that Carlos Gomez (hamstring) is likely to be activated from the disabled list on Saturday.

Gomez said as much earlier this week, but it means more now that the skipper has confirmed it. The speedy outfielder only recently resumed running, but his right hamstring evidently responded well. Roenicke also added that he's now sure whether Gomez will return to the leadoff spot or possibly hit lower in the order.
May 1 - 12:55 PM

Carlos Gomez (hamstring) said he's aiming to return to the Brewers' active roster on Saturday.

But he obviously won't have the final say. Gomez has been on the disabled list since April 16 with a right hamstring strain and just began running. Either way, he should be back at the top of Milwaukee's starting lineup by early next week. It'll be a much-needed boost for the struggling Brew Crew.
Apr 28 - 5:44 PM

Carlos Gomez (hamstring) did some hitting and throwing on Monday.

He didn't run any yet, which will obviously be the biggest test. Gomez has reported improvement with his strained right hamstring, but he's still likely to be sidelined for at least another couple weeks.
Apr 20 - 4:51 PM

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Friday that while it's still too early to tell definitively, Carlos Gomez (hamstring) could return in two-to-three weeks.

Gomez is dealing with a strained right hamstring, and it seems like he'll require more than just a minimum stint on the disabled list. Gerardo Parra will function as the team's primary center fielder in his absence and is worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.
Apr 17 - 6:13 PM

Brewers placed OF Carlos Gomez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 16, with a right hamstring strain.

Gomez has been given a cortisone shot and will be re-evaluated next week before the Brewers determine whether he might be out longer than 15 days. They'll make a corresponding roster move prior to Friday's game, with Jason Rogers, Shane Peterson and Elian Herrera the most likely candidates for a promotion. Gerardo Parra will take over as the Brewers' center fielder while Gomez is out. Jean Segura moved up to replace Gomez in the leadoff spot Thursday, although Scooter Gennett is also a candidate to see time there if he starts swinging the bat better.

Brewers assistant general manager Gordon Ash said Thursday that Carlos Gomez (hamstring) will be placed on the disabled list.

The All-Star outfielder is dealing with a small tear in his right hamstring and it's unclear at the moment how long he will be sidelined. He also received a cortisone shot on Thursday. Gerardo Parra will see time in center field in his absence.
Apr 16 - 7:02 PM

Carlos Gomez (hamstring) is not in the Brewers' starting lineup Thursday versus the Cardinals.

No surprise after Gomez felt a pull in his right hamstring Wednesday night. If he suffered a strain, a trip to the disabled list is probably inevitable. He's headed back to Milwaukee for an examination by team doctors. Gerardo Parra is starting in center field on Thursday afternoon against Cardinals right-hander John Lackey and could be asked to play there regularly over the next couple of weeks. Jean Segura is leading off.
Apr 16 - 11:30 AM

Carlos Gomez exited Wednesday's loss to the Cardinals with a right hamstring injury.

Gomez said he felt a pull in the hamstring and let up while running down the first base line in the ninth inning. He's already been ruled out for Thursday's matinee, and the Brewers will know more about his availability going forward depending on how he feels Thursday.
Apr 15 - 11:43 PM

Carlos Gomez left Wednesday's game against the Cardinals with a lower-body injury.

Sprinting to beat out a double play in the ninth inning, Gomez pulled up as he raced down the line. He beat the relay throw, but left with a trainer shortly after. It was certainly not a great tradeoff for Gomez or the Brewers. The club should update his status soon.
Apr 15 - 11:15 PM

Carlos Gomez went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in Monday's win over the Cardinals.

He singled in the fifth and doubled in a run and scored what turned out to be the winning run in the seventh. Gomez was the lone Brewer to record a multi-hit game, and the squeaked by with a victory despite committing two errors and getting out-hit.
Apr 13 - 7:39 PM

Carlos Gomez had his first hit and first RBI of the season in Tuesday's loss to the Rockies.

Gomez and his Brewers teammates have started slow out of the gate, getting outscored 15-2 in the season's first two games, but he collected an RBI double off Rockies starter Jordan Lyles in the fifth inning. He's just 1-for-8 (.125) with three strikeouts in the first two games, but Gomez is one of the most dangerous offensive players in the league and should heat up sooner than later.
Apr 7 - 11:43 PM

Carlos Gomez is out of the Brewers' Cactus League lineup Thursday due to hamstring tightness.

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Gomez would be fine to play if this were a regular-season game. The 29-year-old will lead off for the Brewers on Opening Day.
Apr 2 - 1:20 PM

Carlos Gomez will begin the season as the Brewers' leadoff hitter.

That means Scooter Gennett will be moved down to the No. 7 spot, hurting his fantasy value. Gomez will obviously have fewer chances to drive in runs in the leadoff spot, but he should also score a few more runs and possibly run a bit more. While this is manager Ron Roenicke's plan going into the season, it's always possible he'll eventually shake things up and put Gomez into a run-producing spot.
Mar 31 - 7:19 PM

Carlos Gomez went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI versus the Athletics on Wednesday.

Gomez hit a solo home run off of Sonny Gray in the first inning, knocked in a run with a ground out in the second, and singled in a third run in the third inning. Gomez, a back-to-back All-Star, has had a terrific spring, now carrying a .435 average (10-for-23) with three homers and 10 RBI. The 29-year-old figures to serve as a fantasy monster again this season.
