MILWAUKEE -- Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez left Sunday's game against Atlanta with a left shoulder sprain after making a leaping catch at the wall in the top of the fourth inning. Gomez, 27, robbed Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons of an extra base hit with the catch, but his left shoulder hit the wall hard on his way down. Gomez immediately grabbed his shoulder and began walking off the field before Brewers athletic trainer Dan Wright and manager Ron Roenicke could get out on the field. In the midst of a career year, Gomez is hitting .313 with 12 home runs, 37 RBI and 15 stolen bases. Leading baseball in WAR at 4.8, Gomez has a chance to make his first All-Star Game. Gomez broke his left collarbone making a diving catch in a game in Arizona on July 20, 2011 and was out until Sept. 2. With left fielder Ryan Braun and first baseman Corey Hart already on the disabled list, the Brewers cannot afford to lose Gomez for a significant period of time. Third baseman Aramis Ramirez is not 100 percent and trying to play through left knee pain, leaving Milwaukee without the majority of its run producers. Follow Andrew Gruman on Twitter
