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.

    Sucks for him. He’ll probably never have another year like this. You should just call him Carlos Weeks. Both suck anyways.

      Hey look guys he is trolling again. How interesting

    Hopefully he will be ok, sprain is good news as I thought it could have been a separation when I initially saw the play. I hope he comes back soon, he is having a good year and is fun to watch on offense as well as defense right now.

    His career will never be the same.

    Carlos has become one of my favorite Brewers and I am not alone in this. Watching this overgrown kid having so much fun and trying so hard just makes a guy pull for him. Even when he makes the occasional bonehead mistake on the bases. I wish MKE had a dozen more just like him.

    Maybe he won’t be able to showboat as much when he comes back from this….
