The injury is a small fracture in his left hand, Willie Randolph just said. Gomez was hurt checking his swing in the 6th inning last night. David Newhan is here now, but Randolph didn’t discount the idea this might mean seeing Lastings Milledge sooner.
“The most important thing is for him to get more playing time,’’ Randolph said.
It seems to me without Gomez, there’s room for Milledge.
