Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez was placed on the disabled list back in early August after getting nailed in the head by a pitch. He had a concussion, and dealt with symptoms for a little over two weeks before beginning a minor league rehab assignment last week. Now he’s coming back to the big leagues.
According to MLB.com Brewers beat writer Adam McCalvy, Gomez passed a round of tests on Monday morning and will be activated from the disabled list before Tuesday’s game against the Dodgers.
But he might not be in the starting lineup.
Gomez was batting just .228/.386/.350 with five home runs, nine doubles and 22 RBI in 75 games before the injury and Lorenzo Cain has since captured his starting job.
Cain, 24, went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Sunday’s loss to the Padres, but he has a .333/.377/.458 batting line overall with four doubles, a triple and three stolen bases in 16 games since his early-August promotion. The Brewers may decide to move one of the two young outfielders in what should be a busy offseason in Milwaukee.
