Gomez 'ahead of schedule' with sprained knee

MILWAUKEE -- All-Star center fielder Carlos Gomez is "ahead of schedule" in his return from a sprained right knee, said Brewers manager Ron Roenicke, who would not rule out using Gomez off the bench during the team's three-game series against the Cardinals from Monday to Wednesday.

Gomez, injured while making a leaping catch at the wall on Thursday, ran on the field Monday afternoon and took swings in the batting cage. He said he hoped to take full batting practice on Tuesday.

Asked when he expected to rejoin the starting lineup, Gomez said, "We don't know yet. I'm just taking it day by day."
