Mike McGinnis/Getty Images(CHICAGO) — The Milwaukee Brewers will be without All-Star outfielder Carlos Gomez for at least a week.
The Brewers, who trail the Cardinals by two games for first place in the NL Central, learned the news Tuesday after Gomez had his left wrist examined by the team doctor. It was determined Gomez had no structural damage but that he had a significant sprain that requires the wrist to be in a brace.
Gomez injured the wrist while swinging the bat during the team’s loss to San Francisco Sunday. He will be shut down completely for a week before resuming baseball activities.
The 28-year-old Gomez is hitting .282 with 21 home runs, 85 runs scored, and 29 stolen bases this season.
