MLB Injury News:
After making a sensation catch that resulted in a sprained knee, Carlos Gomez is making progress. However, he's not quite ready to return to the lineup. He shouldn't be out long, though. Gomez could return in a few days.
According to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com, the Brewers expect to know a lot more about Gomez's future today. They have been monitoring him closely. While a trip to the DL has not been ruled out, it seems increasingly unlikely as Gomez makes progress.
"Dan [Wright, the Brewers' head athletic trainer] told me today and tomorrow are going to be really important as to if we can go through this thing without [placing Gomez on the disabled list]," Roenicke said. "Maybe he's just out, whatever, four, five, six days. We'll know a lot more today and [Sunday]."
Gomez is a key part of the Brewers future, so the team will not do anything to rush him back early from injury. The team is in a position of possibility. They aren't competitive this season, but there is a good chance they will be next season. Gomez will be a big part of that. Since coming over from the Minnesota Twins, Gomez has turned into an All-Star…literally.
Gomez is a career .254/.302/.404 hitter. But this season, he made his first All-Star Game and is hitting .288/.339/.519 with 18 home runs. Gomez hit 19 home runs all of last season. He is starting to find his power stroke and is hitting for a higher average. The Brewers expect more of the same going forward if he can stay healthy.

Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez is day to day after he sprained his right knee making a leaping catch at the wall.
Gomez had an MRI on Friday that confirmed the sprain, and he hobbled around on crutches before Milwaukee's game against the Reds. Manager Ron Roenicke says he'll have a better idea in the next few days of when the All-Star will return to the lineup.

Pretty sure Ryan Braun is in the running for worst human being ever…or near the top.
Exposed liar/disgraced former MVP Ryan Braun was said to have told players that the collector of his urine sample which tested outrageously high for synthetic testosterone was an anti-Semite. This was all in an attempt by Braun to garner the sympathy from peers and discredit the collector.
MILWAUKEE -- It was hard to know what Yovani Gallardo was going to give the Milwaukee Brewers in his first start back from the disabled list, but even optimists couldn't have expected the end result.
Gallardo allowed just three hits and walked only two batters in 6 13 scoreless innings, as he out-dueled Cincinnati's Mat Latos in Milwaukee's 2-0 win.
Following a 19-pitch...

Tweet There’s pretty much no question at this point that the public opinion of Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun has changed after his latest suspension for his role in the Biogenesis scandal. However, the public perception keeps getting worse even after Braun’s recent suspension. According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, Braun “lobbied for support” from fellow […]

Teammates, friends and fans all felt betrayed by Ryan Braun’s role in the Biogenesis scandal that saw him accept a 65-game suspension on July 22. Braun vehemently denied using performing-enhancing drugs in the past, and now an apology and admission of guilt by the outfielder won’t erase the damage he did for at least one man in Major League Baseball.
