Add Gomez to injury report
With Ryan Braun on the bench resting a sore Achilles, the injury bug bit another Brewers outfielder on Friday night.
Carlos Gomez left the Brewers’ 6-4 win over the Giants in the fourth inning after tweaking his left hamstring. He was hurt sprinting down the first base line on a fly out, and after the game manager Ron Roenicke characterized the injury as troubling.
“We’ll wait and see how he is [Saturday] and then make a decision on what we need to do,” Roenicke said. “It looks like it’s more than a day, but I don’t think it’s real bad.”
Asked whether he expected Gomez to need a stint on the 15-day disabled list, Roenicke said, “That’s what we’ll decide [Saturday].”
Braun is also questionable for Saturday. The Brewers and Giants play an afternoon game at 3:05 p.m. CT.
