      CHICAGO Milwaukee Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez has been diagnosed with a sprained left wrist and will be out of the starting lineup for at least one week.The Brewers went into Tuesday night's game against the Cubs in Chicago trailing NL Central-leading St. Louis by one game.Gomez injured his wrist swinging a bat in Milwaukee's 15-5 loss to San Francisco on Sunday.The two-time All Star will remain available as a pinch-runner and defensive replacement, but he will not swing a bat until Sunday.The Brewers say Gomez isn't going on the disabled list. Manager Ron Roenicke admits the injury could potentially keep Gomez out of the lineup for a couple of weeks."It's going to take some time," Roenicke said.Gomez is batting .281 with 21 home runs and 29 stolen bases this season.
