The Milwaukee Brewers are set to honor three former players by adding them to their Wall of Honor.
Carlos Gomez, Yovani Gallardo and Francisco Rodriguez will be inducted this year.
Gomez, who spent six of his 13 years in the Major Leagues with Milwaukee, will retire as a Brewer before being added to the wall.
During Gómez’s tenure, he batted .267 with 87 HR, 288 RBI and 152 stolen bases in 697 games. A two-time All-Star in Milwaukee (2013, 2014), Gómez is one of only six players to be awarded a Gold Glove with the Brewers, earning the honor in 2013 as the first member of the Crew to do so since 1982. In 2011, he recorded a perfect fielding percentage as the Brewers’ everyday center fielder and was a force in the team’s run to the National League Championship Series, batting .357 in eight postseason contests.
Gallardo was selected by the Brewers in the second round of the 2004 First-Year Player Draft and went on to spend eight seasons with the team (2007-14), going 89-54 with a 3.69 ERA in 214 appearances (211 starts). He holds the all-time franchise record in strikeouts (1,226) and earned Brewers Pitcher of the Year honors three times (2009, 2010, 2012). In 2010, he represented the team in the All-Star Game and went on to earn a Silver Slugger Award among National League pitchers.
Rodríguez spent five seasons of his 16-year Major League career in a Brewers uniform, recording a 2.91 ERA and 95 saves in 263 appearances while being selected to the All-Star team in 2014 and 2015. In those years (2014-15), he combined to record 82 saves and joined John Axford as the only two pitchers in franchise history to record at least 35 saves in multiple seasons.
