Carlos Gomez undergoes surgery to remove loose bodies from elbow

By Mike Axisa | Baseball Writer

Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez recently had arthroscopic surgery to remove loose bodies from his right (throwing) elbow, reports Tom Haudricourt of the Journal Sentinel. Gomez tweeted out a picture of his post-op elbow Friday evening:

Gomez, 27, hit .284/.338/.506 (126 OPS+) this season while setting new career-highs in runs (80), hits (152), doubles (27), triples (10), home runs (24), RBI (73), stolen bases (40) and walks (37). Add in stellar center field defense and he was worth 8.4 WAR in 2013, tied with Clayton Kershaw for the second highest in baseball behind Mike Trout (9.2).

Haudricourt says there was no indication Gomez needed a clean-up procedure on his elbow. Assistant GM Gord Ash said the surgery is not considered a serious matter.
