The Brewers have activated center fielder Carlos Gomez from the 15-day disabled list for today’s game against the Cubs. He’s batting leadoff in his return against right-hander Jake Arrieta.
Gomez has been out since April 15 due to a strained right hamstring and he has been missed in a big way. The Brewers went 3-12 during his absence and own the worst record in the majors at 5-18. While his return is welcome sight, Jonathan Lucroy and Scooter Gennett are both still on the disabled list and Aramis Ramirez is sitting out for a second straight day due to hamstring tightness.
The Brewers designated infielder Luis Jimenez for assignment in order to clear the way for Gomez’s return.
