After his hot start, Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez has been hampered by multiple ailments which have impacted his performance. His elbow injury flared up Saturday, resulting in the Brewers holding Gomez out of yesterday's weekend finale against the Miami Marlins, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. Beyond his right elbow injury, Gomez has also dealt with a sore left shoulder and left thumb over the past few weeks. As a result, he's been limited to three hits in his last 39 at-bats. Manager Ron Roenicke was hopeful that one day off would allow Gomez to rejoin the Brewers' lineup tonight when they take on the San Diego Padres. "He's got some physical stuff going on; that's why he's not playing today," manager Ron Roenicke said. "He's got a little elbow thing going on, and he has that off and on, but it flared up [Saturday]." Following Friday night's victory over the Marlins, Gomez told reporters that his injuries are impacting his performance. He realizes that he won't be 100 percent all the time, but Milwaukee is hoping he can return healthier after taking yesterday off. "They are little things that complicate it when you want to be really, really good," Gomez said. "I've been playing because I don't think to play baseball games you need to be 100 percent. I don't put out excuses, but sometimes there are little things that don't let you do exactly what you want to." On the season, Gomez has hit .292/.335/.534 with 20 doubles, nine triples and 15 home runs over 370 plate appearances with 21 stolen bases in 24 attempts.
