After tearing his ACL chasing a foul pop-up in San Diego on May 1, likely ending his season, Brewers first baseman Mat Gamel underwent successful surgery on his right knee Tuesday morning, according to a tweet from the Brewers.
Brewers team doctor William Raasch performed the procedure.
Gamel had expressed his urgency to get surgery through Twitter a few days ago, as he waited for the swelling in his knee to subside. On Monday night, the night before his surgery, Gamel tweeted that he was "ready to start moving forward."
Gamel's surgery is the second successful procedure done on a torn ACL, as shortstop Alex Gonzaleztore his soon after Gamel, sliding awkwardly into second base. In 21 games this year, Gamel was batting .246 with one home run and six RBI.
