From Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel comes word that center fielder Carlos Gomez is not in the Brewers’ starting lineup on Tuesday evening against the Cubs because of lingering discomfort in his left shoulder.
Gomez was diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain on Sunday afternoon after leaping into the center field wall to make a highlight-reel catch on an Andrelton Simmons line drive. Gomez told Haudricourt that he plans to return to action on Wednesday, but that might be a little optimistic considering the velocity with which he hit the wall and the pain-filled look on his face as he sauntered into the Brewers’ dugout.
Gomez, 27, is batting .313 with 12 home runs, 15 stolen bases and a .925 OPS in 72 games this season for Milwaukee. Logan Schafer is starting in his place Tuesday against Cubs right-hander Edwin Jackson.
