The Milwaukee Brewers and fantasy owners received tough news on the left wrist injury suffered by awesome outfielder Carlos Gomez, one that could keep him out of action the next two weeks, if not more. Fantasy owners wisely love Gomez, who entered Tuesday as the No. 10 option on the season Player Rater and seventh among all hitters with a .282 batting average, 21 home runs and 29 stolen bases. Gomez is eighth in the majors in stolen bases, and the top seven options have combined for 38 home runs. He has 21. Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier is the only other player with as many as 20 home runs and 20 steals. While Gomez was hitting .219 over the past 30 days, which won't be missed, the six home runs and nine stolen bases will be.
