"He's sore so just going to give him a day and see how he feels tomorrow," Brewers manager Craig Counsell said. "I mean, he got hit good. That's a bad spot to get hit. He needs that to swing the bat, so we'll see how he feels tomorrow."
Counsell added that he doesn't believe Gomez will miss much time and should return to the lineup soon.
Gomez has been a little banged up this year, also spending time on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring from April 17 to May 1.
"He's had a tough season, gets healthy some here, some there," Counsell said. "Unfortunately [he] hasn't been able to dodge just some random injuries."
Gomez was 3-for-7 in the series vs. the Reds with one home run and five RBIs. In Friday's opener, he hit his first career grand slam. Gomez is now hitting .269/.314/.423 with six home runs and 31 RBIs in 56 games this season.
