Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez underwent arthroscopic surgery to remove “loose bodies” from the joint of his right elbow, reports Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. He tweeted a picture of his elbow last night.
Gomez dealt with some soreness in his elbow during the season, but there was no prior announcement about a need for surgery. Still, Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash said the procedure was minor, so it shouldn’t have an impact on his availability for spring training.
Gomez enjoyed his best offensive season in 2013, batting .283/.338/.506 with 24 home runs, 73 RBI, and 40 stolen bases over 147 games. Thanks to contributions on offense and his excellent defense in center field, the 27-year-old finished tied for fourth among position players in fWAR.
