BREAKING NEWS: Brewers Mat Gamel to Miss Entire 2013 Season

 On Saturday, I reported here that Brewers second-string first baseman Mat Gamel, expected to be pressed into service until Corey Hart can return from knee surgery, left the field during team workouts in Phoenix.

ESPN.com, citing an MLB.com report, has just released word that Gamel will miss the entire 2013 season after an MRI revealed damage to the same knee he hurt last season.



The Brewers latest update on Hart was that he might be ready to join the lineup by late April.  For now, Milwaukee must find a viable fill in at first.  No player is listed in the teams’ official depth chart. Carlos Lee is still an unsigned free agent with a fan base in Milwaukee, having played there from 2005-06, and might be considered.  Former Giant Aubrey Huff is also without a contract for 2013.  Youngster Hunter Morris is the only other first baseman currently in Brewers camp.

Check back for more information as this story develops.

  1. This is really a tough break. I'm not sure we will ever know how good this kid could have been now.

  2. Better get Mike Carp before he gets sent elsewhere, he's already DFA'd and Seattle's GM knows Milwaukee's farm system well from his time with the team. Could get something done within hours if they get on the phone.
