This might be another major blow to the Brewers.
Carlos Gomez was removed from Sunday’s game against the Braves after appearing to injure his left shoulder while leaping into the center field wall to rob Atlanta’s Andrelton Simmons of extra bases. He completed the catch but immediately clutched his left arm and walked off the field in obvious pain.
The 27-year-old entered play Sunday with a stellar .314/.354/.572 batting line, 12 home runs, 37 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 71 games this season for fourth-place Milwaukee. He inked a three-year, $24 million contract extension with the Brewers in March.
UPDATE, 4:29 PM ET: According to Brewers senior director of media relations Mike Vassallo, the center fielder has been diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain and is considered day-to-day for the time being.
