Gomez: ‘I’m tired of getting hit’


No one likes geting hit with a pitch, but Brewers centerfielder Carlos Gomez is getting especially frustrated lately.

Gomez has been hit three times in the hand/wrist area this season and his patience is clearly wearing thin.

"I’m tired of getting hit," Gomez told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "I got hit a month and a half ago in Atlanta and it still hurts (a lot). It’s not fun. It’s not like I get hit down low. It’s always up at my head.

"Then, if you do something, they look at you like a troublemaker or bad guy. I’m tired of it. They should make a rule that if a pitcher hits you up high you are free to let it go and go get (the pitcher). I try to play like a good boy and take it like a man and go to first base.

"But one of those days, it’s going to be ugly. If they want to throw in, that’s fine. I don’t complain to get hit if you throw in and hit me low. But not up because it’s something easy to break in your hands or get a concussion if you get hit in the head. I’m tired of it.
