Fantasy impact of Carlos Gomez injury
For those needing every last bench spot in re-draft formats, yeah, if you need to drop Gomez, go for it. It's a wrist injury and there's little guarantee Gomez will hit upon return, or if he will return at all. Look around the league at other guys getting shut down left and right. Sure, the Brewers are a contender, but they might not be in a week. We could see Gomez pinch run, but since it's September and rosters have expanded there's no need for players to be placed on the disabled list, so don't look for the asterisk in our game. There are three-plus weeks remaining in the season. Those in their head-to-head playoffs, in which the season could end this weekend, also will be looking for every available edge. The truth is nobody knows when Gomez can play again, but the Brewers do have outfield depth and Gomez is a major part of their future, so I'm guessing no matter how many games the Brewers lose, he won't be rushed. Gerardo Parra handled center field Tuesday and he's a reasonable pickup in standard leagues. Parra homered Monday and stole a base last week and is on pace to reach double-digits in each.
