The outfielder underwent an MRI, which revealed no serious damage. Gomez had been seen limping around on crutches last Friday, but hopes to return to the field at the end of the week.
Gomez was able to complete a pool workout and play catch on the field, and plans to take batting practice later in the week, according to McCalvy. The Brewers have not set a timeline for his return, but McCalvy believes that Friday's series opener against the Reds is a logical return date.
The 27-year-old has had a breakout season, hitting .289/.340/.520 while playing excellent defense in centerfield. Fangraphs credits Gomez with 5.8 WAR, the second-highest WAR among NL position players.
