Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez was a late scratch from Monday’s series opener against the Royals and he is out of the starting lineup again on Tuesday, but his hip issue is not overly serious

Gerardo Parra started in center field and Shane Peterson started in left field Tuesday night versus Kansas City. Gomez, batting .270/.309/.433 in 43 games this season, should be ready by the end of the week.

Among several transactions made on Sunday, the Angels announced that pitcher Matt Harvey has been released. The right-hander was designated for assignment on Friday.

Harvey, 30, was hoping to bounce back with the Angels after signing a one-year, $11 million contract in December. It didn’t work out. In 12 starts spanning 59 2/3 innings, Harvey allowed 47 earned runs on 63 hits and 29 walks with 39 strikeouts. Harvey missed time between May 24 and July 12 with an upper back injury.

Since his 2015 campaign with the Mets, after recovering from Tommy John surgery, Harvey has a 5.65 ERA in exactly 400 innings. Given his age, he could still find an opportunity with another team short on pitching depth, but he is running out of leash, as they say.
