MILWAUKEE -- While injuries continue to be a problem for the Brewers, at least one player who spent time on the disabled list might finally be on his way to full health.

Carlos Gomez, who batted from the leadoff spot for the second time this season on Saturday, is riding his first three-game hit streak since coming off the 15-day DL on May 20. On Wednesday against the Dodgers, Gomez notched his first four-hit game of the year, and is 6-for-9 in his last three appearances. Prior to that, he was 3-for-19 (.158) since injuring his left hamstring on May 4.

Manager Ron Roenicke said it's nice to see Gomez, who was batting over .300 for the first month of the season, get back to where he was to start the year. And with Gomez making just his fifth start since coming back on Saturday, Roenicke said he expects him to see more playing time soon.


"Before he got hurt, I thought he was really good [at the plate]," Roenicke said of Gomez. "When he first came back, he was lost. I was surprised how much difference there was. Now what I see is what he was doing before, and I think when he's 100 percent, I'll try to get him out there more often."
