Gomez day-to-day, Figaro optioned, Halton recalled

With Gomez temporarily unavailable, the Brewers have added a man to their bench.

We've got three pieces of news today, so let's start with the best one: Carlos Gomez underwent an MRI today and it confirmed the earlier diagnosis of a sprained knee. No further damage was found and he's day-to-day. Gomez injured the knee while making a catch at the wall in last night's game.

Meanwhile, though, Gomez's injury leaves their already-short bench a man shorter, so the Brewers have recalled Sean Halton from Nashville. Halton appeared in 19 games for the Brewers earlier this season and hit .200/.217/.311 over 46 at bats, and was hitting .288/.347/.494 over 85 games in AAA. This spot probably would've gone to Caleb Gindl, but roster rules require the Brewers wait ten days to recall him unless someone is going on the DL.

No one is going on the DL today, though, because the Brewers freed up Halton's roster spot by optioning Alfredo Figaro to AAA. Figaro has appeared in just five games since being activated off the DL on July 24, posting a 2.38 ERA over 11.1 innings in long relief.
