Gomez (wrist) will return to the lineup Monday against the Marlins, playing center field and batting leadoff, Andrew Gruman of FOXSportsWisconsin.com reports.
It appeared less than a week ago that Gomez could miss close to the rest of the regular season with the wrist ailment, but after making unexpectedly positive progress while taking batting practice over the weekend, the Brewers signed off on his return. With Milwaukee's playoff hopes taking a huge hit during their recent nine-game losing streak, the return of Gomez could provide precisely the spark the team needs. He looked to be fine while making a pinch-hitting appearance Sunday against the Cardinals, delivering an RBI single.
