Milwaukee’s pro ballplayers are dropping like flies.

Just a few days after losing first baseman Mat Gamel to a season-ending knee injury, the Brewers have placed outfielder Carlos Gomez and shortstop Alex Gonzalez on the 15-day disabled list.

This according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Gomez was diagnosed Friday night with a left hamstring strain. He should be fully recovered once his 15 days are up. Gonzalez is waiting for the swelling in his right knee to subside so that he can undergo an MRI exam. The belief is that he suffered a serious injury while sliding into second base during Saturday’s 5-2 loss to the Giants.

Gomez, 26, is batting .280 with an .801 OPS and five stolen bases in 54 plate appearances this year as the Brewers’ part-time center fielder. Gonzalez, 35, was hitting .250/.318/.450 in 88 plate appearances.

    You know what comes next, right? One of the sausage racers blows out an Achilles tendon.
