OF Carlos Gomez scratched from Brewers' lineup vs Royals

MILWAUKEE (AP) -

Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez has been scratched from the starting lineup for Monday night's game against Kansas City with right leg tightness.

Gomez has had problems with the leg since spending two weeks on the disabled list in late April for a hamstring injury. He also missed a few games last week.

Lately, Gomez appears to be bothered more by the upper part of the leg. He has said he has been playing with a wrap near his hip.

He is hitting .270 with five homers and 24 RBIs, plus six stolen bases. He got Milwaukee's only hit Sunday off Max Scherzer in a 4-0 loss to Washington.

Gerardo Parra moved from left to center and replaced Gomez in the leadoff spot. Shane Peterson was put into the lineup in left.
