According to a report, Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez will get a hearing Monday for his appeal of a three-game suspension stemming from an April 20 brawl in Pittsburgh.
The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Todd Rosiak reported the story Friday.
“Last night I got a text message from my agent and I think it’s going to be [May 5],” Gomez said. “We’re going to know [May 5]. I think I’m going to have a phone call and they’re going to tell me what they’re going to do.”
The Brewers will be back in Milwaukee on Monday to play the Arizona Diamondbacks and outfielder Logan Schafer is expected to be activated from the 15-day disabled list on Saturday, meaning the Crew would have a center fielder for however long Gomez’s suspension will be.
Just because it’s fun, here’s the incident from April 20:
Gomez continues to be unrepentant for his role in the skirmish, but acknowledges responsibility for what happened.
“I’m not sorry, but we’re responsible for the stuff that we do and we have to move forward,” Gomez said. “We still have a long way to go. I feel upset because some people say I’m a bad guy when I’m not.”
Gomez, who won his first Gold Glove and earned his first All-Star nod last season, is hitting .294/.356/.571 in 29 games and 132 plate appearances this season, with eight doubles, two triples, seven homers, 17 RBI and four stolen bases. He’s struck out 35 times.
