Gomez set to come off disabled list Sunday

MILWAUKEE -- The Brewers optioned infielder Brooks Conrad to Triple-A Nashville and planned to activate outfielder Carlos Gomez from the 15-day disabled list before Sunday's series finale against the Twins.

Sunday is the first day Gomez is eligible to return from a strained left hamstring. He was scheduled to play seven innings for Class A Wisconsin on Saturday night, capping a four-game rehabilitation assignment.

Conrad had batted .400 at Nashville before his May 4 promotion but was unable to continue that success in the Majors. He was 0-for-21 in a Brewers uniform, including a first-pitch pop-out in the seventh inning of Saturday's extra-inning loss.

"It's frustrating, I just didn't have any production or results," Conrad said. "You have to contribute to stay around."
