Two days after he was limping around the clubhouse on crutches Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez resumed baseball activities on Sunday and spoke of returning to the lineup before the end of the week. Gomez sprained his right knee when he made a wall-banging catch on Thursday against the Reds and needed an MRI scan the following morning to confirm there was no serious damage. He completed a pool workout on Sunday took “dry” swings in the batting cage and played catch on the field and hoped to graduate to regular batting practice before the Brewers begin a series against the Cardinals on Monday. His timeline remains open-ended. Considering the Brewers will want to use Tuesday to see how Gomez responds to his field work and that Wednesday is a day game and Thursday a scheduled off-day it could make sense to wait until Friday’s series in opener in Cincinnati to return to the lineup. “Everything is going like it’s supposed to” Gomez said. “It’s way way better.” Gomez said Monday would be a “big day” in terms of determining a schedule for his comeback. He would not rule out playing before the end of the Cardinals series.
