Brewers cautious with speedster Gomez

PHOENIX -- Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez remained sidelined Sunday by back stiffness caused by a soft mattress at his Spring Training residence.

He has been sleeping on the floor and seeing improvement, manager Ron Roenicke said, and Dr. William Raasch was not particularly concerned after examining Gomez on Sunday morning. If Gomez still cannot play in Monday's game against the A's, he could see a number of at-bats in Minor League camp on Tuesday's off-day.

"It doesn't seem to bother him swinging, so that would probably be a good idea," Roenicke said. "It's more the bending over and arching back."
