Hector Gomez suffered a serious groin injury recently during Dominican Winter League play and could miss much of the 2013 season.
"He will probably have surgery in the next couple of days," said Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash. "He has had a history of groin injuries and it flared up again. We just don't know the extent of it. Is it a fourth-month (absence) or eight months?" Gomez, 24, was claimed off waivers from the Rockies in June and had been slated to start the season at Double-A.
