MLB Injury News:
It seems only natural that Carlos Gomez of the Milwaukee Brewers would injure himself in the process of making yet another highlight reel catch. The 27-year old has enjoyed an All-Star campaign in 2013, and his sterling play on both sides of the ball has been one of the few bright spots in what has been a miserable season for the Milwaukee Brewers.
Gomez suffered a sprain right knee making one of his patented wall-crashing catches off the bat of Brandon Phillips on Thursday, causing him to miss the remainder of the weekend series against the Cincinnati Reds. Confined to crutches, the outfielder avoided any serious damage as confirmed by an MRI and was diagnosed with a simple sprain. After staying off the field Saturday, Gomez returned Sunday to resume baseball activities and commence with a pool workout to aid his ailing knee.
Monday's agenda is tentatively scheduled to include his participation in batting practice, and while no timetable has been set, Gomez believes he's not far from a return to the lineup.
"When we knew there is no damage there, we can be more aggressive,"
Gomez said of his speedy recovery. "I don't know about two days, three
days [before I can return]. If it goes the way it's going right now, we
expect to play soon, but we don't have a date. If I played another
position, like first base, and I didn't depend on my speed, maybe
sooner. But the way I play, the way I run, my speed is a big part of my
With the Brewers wishing to use Tuesday to evaluate Gomez's progress, it's unlikely he would appear in the three-game set against the Cardinals. Due to Thursday's scheduled off-day, the safe bet is to expect a return in time for Friday's series opener in Cincinnati. Looking to be in the clear regarding any prolonged injury issues, it's safe to assume that Carlos Gomez will resume his gravity-defying acts of excitement and intrigue in the very near future.
