|by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com|
(5/13/13) After sitting out the day before due to back and shoulder issues, Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez was back in action for Monday's series opener against the Pirates. He went 1 for 4 with an RBI and a stolen base in a 5-1 win.
The 27-year-old plated a run when he reached on an infield single in his first at-bat. He then swiped second base for his eighth steal.
Gomez is batting .381 (16 for 42) in May with two homers, eight RBI and four stolen bases.

(5/12/13) Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez insisted he is not injured and said the reason he was not in the lineup Sunday against the Reds was to get a routine day off, MLB.com reports. Gomez, who has been getting treatment on his back since spring training, was used as a pinch hitter in the ninth inning and struck out.
"It's normal," he said. "Everybody is beat up."
Gomez is batting .371/.414/.645 with six home runs and 16 RBI over 124 at-bats.

(5/12/13) Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez is out of Sunday's lineup with back and shoulder soreness, the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports.
Gomez has dealt with a back injury going back to spring training and may have tweaked a prior injury in his throwing shoulder with some awkward swings in Saturday's game. The injury isn't expected to be serious enough to place him on the disabled list, but it could mean a few extra days off in the near future.

|Carlos Gomez appeared to have a breakout season in 2012, and Fantasy owners long accustomed to Gomez falling short of expectations were likely taken by surprise. Actually, the seeds of the breakout were sown one year before, but he played in just 94 games due to a broken collarbone and spending time in a platoon role. In 2011, Gomez hit eight home runs in that limited playing time, but he carried over and sustained his newfound power throughout the whole '12 season. By the season's midpoint, Gomez was no longer a part-time option, as he had earned regular playing time, and he hit even better as a regular. Not coincidentally, Gomez has been much less of ground ball hitter over the last two years, so there is good reason to think that he will continue to hit for power as he heads into the 2013 season as the Brewers' everyday center fielder. With regular at-bats also comes the potential for another 30-plus stolen base season, so despite a low batting average, Gomez has appeal for owners in Rotisserie leagues. While he is more of a late-round option in points leagues, owners in Rotisserie formats can target Gomez in the middle rounds. (Updated 1/2/13)|
