Brewers general manager Doug Melvin confirmed to WTMJ radio's Greg Matzek this morning that outfielder Brett Carroll will come up from Class AAA Nashville to replace injured centerfielder Carlos Gomez.
Gomez suffered a broken left collarbone Wednesday night making a sensational tumbling catch in the Brewers' 5-2, 10-inning victory over Arizona and is likely lost for the remainder of the season.
Carroll, 28, was acquired from Kansas City during spring training for cash considerations. He has played in 173 games in the majors, all with Florida from 2007-2010, compiling a .205 batting average with five homers and 28 RBI. His best showing was in 2009, when he batted .234 with 3 homers and 18 RBI in 141 at-bats.
