MILWAUKEE -- The Milwaukee Brewers deemed Carlos Gomez's concussion serious enough to place him on the 15-day disabled list Friday.

Gomez was hit in the head by a Brian Schlitter pitch on Monday against the Cubs and has not played since. The DL stint is retroactive to Tuesday.

Fortunately for the outfielder, doctors ruled out bleeding on the brain when Gomez had a CT scan at a local hospital.

In his first season with the Brewers, Gomez is batting .228 with five homers and 22 RBI in 75 games. He was replaced on the roster by outfielder Lorenzo Cain, who was recalled from the minors and has played in just three games in his major league career, batting 3-for-5 with a double.
