Gomez, out since May 6 because of a strained left rotator cuff, was batting second Friday at Minnesota. The Twins traded him to the Brewers in the offseason for shortstop J.J. Hardy.
Outfielder Adam Stern was optioned to Triple-A Nashville after less than a week with the Brewers.
Also, catcher Gregg Zaun was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right shoulder, an injury sustained Thursday at Pittsburgh. He left the game in the second inning.
