Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Alex Gonzalez has become a free agent after coming off the 60-day disabled list.
The team said Monday Gonzalez joined Brewers right-handers Shaun Marcum and Francisco Rodriguez in choosing free agency.
Gonzalez missed most of last season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee May 5 at San Francisco.
The Brewers also said first baseman Mat Gamel and left-hander Chris Narveson have come off the 60-day disabled list. Gamel tore the ACL in his right knee May 1 at San Diego. Narveson was put on the DL April 20 with a torn left rotator cuff. He went 1-1 in only two starts last season.
Milwaukee's 40-man roster stands at 36.

They fell of the pace in the National League early in the season, they traded Zack Greinke, and they hit their season low of 12 games under .500 on August 19th. Then, like a light switch, the finished the season playing like their hair was on fire. From August 20th onwards, the Brewers went 29-13. That tied...
Unlikely.Getting through baseball's long, unforgiving offseason is a difficult task. While each season draws to its conclusion, the days also get shorter and the temperatures dip.
