Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez underwent an MRI on his knee yesterday to help determine if he’d require a stint on the disabled list. Following the exam, he expressed relief as the MRI confirmed that his right knee is sprained and not more damaged than initially thought, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. Gomez had been experiencing mixed results after suffering his knee injury while making an impressive catch the other night. This caused the Brewers to request the MRI exam to determine if the damage was worse than initially thought. Fortunately for Gomez and Milwaukee, the initial diagnosis was confirmed. "I feel worse today, but it's because of the swelling and the new injury," Gomez said. "It's something that feels really bad one day, and then the next day, you feel really good. You can recover real fast, because there's not any damage to anything. That's really good news." While the results represented good news, Gomez continued to move around the Brewers’ clubhouse on crutches yesterday, making it clear that he’s still multiple days away from returning. The club is considering him day to day, but Ron Roenicke told reporters that he felt a wave of relief when more extensive damage wasn’t uncovered. For the time being, Milwaukee doesn’t believe Gomez will require time on the DL. While the Brewers won’t rush Gomez back, considering their place in the standings, he has been an integral part to the limited success the team has had this season. Over 460 plate appearances, the 27-year-old hit .288/.339/.519 with 25 doubles, nine triples, 18 home runs to go with 30 stolen bases in 36 attempts.
