Carlos Gomez has been out since injuring his shoulder last Wednesday and he finally landed on the disabled list Monday, leaving Jim Edmonds as the Brewers’ primary center fielder and giving Jody Gerut some extra playing time too.
Gomez had his usual awful strikeout-to-walk ratio before going down, but was hitting .276 with good power and stole six bases without being caught, so the injury is very bad timing for a guy who’s still looking for his first sustained success in the majors.
Edmonds has hit .250/.341/.413 with two homers, seven doubles, and 10 walks in 91 plate appearances, which is pretty impressive for a 40-year-old who sat out all of last season.
