Carlos Gomez exits game with left wrist soreness
Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez was forced to leave Sunday's game due to left wrist soreness.
The Brewers entered Sunday's action with a one-game lead over St. Louis in the NL Central and could ill-afford to play without Gomez for an extended period of time. The two-time All-Star is hitting .282/.348/.479 with 29 doubles, 21 homers, 65 RBI, 85 runs and 29 steals this season, in addition to his stellar defense in center.
Gomez hasn't been on the disabled list since 2012 and "soreness" doesn't sound like it'll hamper him for long.
On the flip-side, if Gomez does miss a few games, it's good that the Brewers swung that under-the-radar trade in late July to land Parra. He should be able to adequately handle center.
