Brewers’ Gomez day to day with right knee sprain

Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez had an MRI on Friday and is

day to day with a sprained right knee after making a leaping catch

at the wall.

Gomez hobbled around on crutches before Milwaukee’s game against

Cincinnati. Manager Ron Roenicke said he’ll have a better idea in

the next few days of when the All-Star will return to the

lineup.

”Tomorrow or the next day we’ll be able to make a call on

that,” Roenicke said. ”I’m hoping he doesn’t need” to be placed

on the disabled list.

Gomez raced to the wall during the fourth inning of Thursday

night’s 2-1 loss to Cincinnati and robbed Brandon Phillips of a

hit. But he crashed awkwardly to the ground with his knee bent

under his body and his hip hit the base of the wall.

Gomez is hitting .288 with 18 homers, 55 RBIs and 30 stolen

bases in 114 games.

Logan Schafer started in center on Friday night, and the Brewers

recalled Sean Halton from Triple-A Nashville. Halton can play first

base or either of the corner outfield spots.

Reliever Alfredo Figaro was sent down to make room on the

roster. Figaro is 2-3 with a 4.25 ERA in 26 games. He last pitched

on Aug. 9 at Seattle.
