Center fielder Carlos Gomez became the latest Milwaukee Brewers player to succumb to the injury bug Friday night, and manager Ron Roenicke told reporters Saturday that Gomez will be placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Gomez was injured rounding first base Friday night in a 6-4 win at San Francisco, and he left the game the next inning. He was replaced in the lineup by outfielder Norichika Aoki, who will be the likely replacement in the team's center field platoon during Gomez's absence. Other injured Brewers on the DL are pitchers Chris Narveson and Brandon Kintzler and first baseman Mat Gamel as the team's injuries have piled up in recent weeks. The Brewers are expected to call up an infielder rather than an outfielder, as Roenicke remains confident in the team's outfield depth. The team did get some good news Saturday, as left fielder Ryan Braun returned from a sore Achilles' tendon after having missed only one full game. He returns to the batting order in his usual No. 3 spot. Right fielder Corey Hart moved back to the fifth slot. Follow Ryan Kartje on Twitter.

Gomez leaves game with sore hamstring

It was the bottom of the fourth inning in a week that had already been a rough one because of a bevy of injuries when Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez sprinted around first base in San Francisco and felt his hamstring tighten up on his left leg. Gomez left Milwaukee's game Friday night in San Francisco and was replaced by Norichika Aoki, who moved to left, while Nyjer Morgan...

Braun out of lineup for Friday night

Milwaukee Brewers star left fielder Ryan Braun will not be in the lineup for Friday night's game in San Francisco. Braun hurt his right Achilles on a slide during Tuesday's game against the Padres. The next game, Braun left with tightness in the muscle, but the injury was not expected to be that serious. Braun had just started to heat up after overcoming a slow start and...

Gonzalez latest Brewer to DL after leg injury

The Milwaukee Brewers' tough week for injuries continues to get worse. In the top of the second inning against San Francisco on Saturday, shortstop Alex Gonzalez left the game after he slid into second base, turning his right knee on the base while stealing. Gonzalez was called safe on the steal but jammed his foot into the base on a late slide. He immediately spun flat on...

Lucroy provides happy contrast to dismal trip

There hasn't been much good news out of the Brewers camp since the team left for a nine-game, 10-day road trip at the end of April. The road trip resulted in four players injured in four consecutive days and twice as many losses as wins. But amid the recent disappointment has been one very quiet, very impressive breakout success of the season's first month. He's been...

Brewers release once-promising Braddock

The after effects of first baseman Mat Gamel's season-ending injury continued to sweep through the organization Friday, as reliever Zach Braddock was released to make room for Brooks Conrad, the team's latest call-up. Gamel's injury prompted the Brewers to call up Conrad, who was not on the 40-man roster. And in order to fit Conrad, without putting Gamel on the 60-day...

Braun out of lineup for opener with Giants

Ryan Braun is out of the Milwaukee Brewers lineup for Friday night's series opener with San Francisco, two days after the reigning NL MVP left the game at San Diego in the sixth inning with a sore right Achilles tendon. Manager Ron Roenicke says the slugger and left fielder could be available off the bench if he does fine handling pregame baseball activities. Roenicke wasn&...

Brewers' Gallardo had speedy return from ACL tear

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Yovani Gallardo defied the knee surgery odds when he returned from a torn ligament in less than five months. Gallardo was 22 at the time he got hurt in 2008 - a far cry from Yankees closer Mariano Rivera at age 42. Gallardo tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee May 1, 2008, and made a remarkable recovery to start again Sept. 25, 2008, -...

Despite Brewers' injuries, Roenicke says, 'We're still good'

It would be easy for the Milwaukee Brewers to collectively say "woe is us," especially after a nine-game trip in which three players went on the disabled list, including two with severe knee injuries that likely will end their seasons. First baseman Mat Gamel and shortstop Alex Gonzalez both were lost with freak yet major knee injuries, only five days apart. Outfielder...

Breaking Down Brewers Pitching: What Gives?

Being a Brewers fan this season is becoming an exercise in extreme patience to say the least.  On days when the bats come alive it seems we can't get the pitching to help out.  On days when the pitching has been awesome we can't hit to save our lives.  So it got me to thinking about what gives, especially with our pitching staff.  Well, the numbers tell us that this staff...

Brewers send Giants to 4th straight loss

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The Brewers figured they should have scored more runs against a wild Tim Lincecum. Milwaukee wound up with just enough when it mattered -- and that marked quite an improvement from two shutout losses at San Diego. Aramis Ramirez broke out of his slump with a go-ahead, two-run single in the seventh inning and the Brewers held on to beat the San Francisco Giants...
