All-Star outfielder Carlos Gomez was placed on the 15-day disabled list by the Milwaukee Brewers because of a strained right hamstring. Gomez suffered the injury during Wednesday’s game against St. Louis, and the DL move was retroactive to Thursday.

Gomez left Wednesday’s game in St. Louis with the injury and returned to Milwaukee to be examined. Utility man Jason Rogers was recalled Friday from triple-A Colorado Springs.

The leadoff hitter was hitting .235 with a homer and six RBIs in eight games. Overall, the Brewers are batting just .223 entering Friday, contributing to a 2-7 start. Gerardo Parra will likely take over in center for Gomez. Rogers was hitting .360 with two homers and seven RBIs in the minors.
