At some point, you have to start wondering what Mat Gamel did to tick off the baseball gods.
The Brewers first baseman will miss the entire 2013 season after re-tearing his right ACL during the team's first full-squad workout this past Saturday. Gamel was pulled from that workout after "tweaking" his knee once while stretching to make a play at first, and again while swinging a bat. This morning, an MRI revealed another tear.
Apparently, tearing a repaired ACL is incredibly rare -- assistant general manager Gord Ash was told that failures only happen 10% of repairs. Even more rare is the fact that Gamel tore the middle part of the repair, when most tears come at either end of the ACL.
So in case you were wondering, yes, if there's a freak injury to be suffered, Mat Gamel will indeed suffer it.
Gamel originally tore the ACL on May 1, crashing into a barricade in San Diego trying to make a play on a foul popup. He came into spring training this...

In January I posted about Corey Hart’s injury and what it meant for the Brewers. I wrote a lot about how Mat Gamel would once again take the role as the starting first-baseman with the absence of Hart. Even though I really wasn’t a huge fan of Gamel because he really didn’t prove much with his short stints in Milwaukee, I was still...
Corey Harts' recent knee surgery meant the Milwaukee Brewers were going
to spend spring training looking for someone to tend to first base until their
slugger returns. Mat Gamel is one of the primary people being offered
that opportunity, but coming off his own knee surgery, Gamel hit an obstacle, forcing
him off the field today.
Gamel, 27, is well on his way...
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...
Last May, just a handful of games into the 2012 season, Brewers infielder Mat Gamel tore the ACL in his right knee, an injury that would put him out of action for the rest of the year. Now, less than a week into spring training, Gamel has once again torn those same ligaments and will miss the entire 2013 season.
It’s a desperately tough break for Gamel who, at 27, is still looking...

PHOENIX For the second season in a row, Milwaukee Brewers first baseman Mat Gamel has suffered a season-ending injury to his right knee. Gamel, who was not available for comment, left practice early on Friday after feeling some aggravation in the repaired joint while fielding and hitting. An MRI on Sunday revealed the tear.
Seattle Mariners general manager Jack Zduriencik has said that he is on the verge of trading first baseman Mike Carp, whom the team designated for assignment last week.
But the Milwaukee Brewers, a team with a glaring need at first base, are not in the mix for Carp, major-league source say.
The Brewers lost Mat Gamel to a season-ending ACL injury on Monday. They also will...

The opening month of the season has not been too kind to Aramis Ramirez, who is a career .263 hitter in March and April, a full 22 points below his career .285 average. Last year was no different with the third baseman hitting a meager .214 during that stretch, his first in Milwaukee.
Ramirez is out to change that this year.

PHOENIX -- Mike Fiers was one of the great surprises of the 2012 Milwaukee Brewers season.
Promoted from Triple-A Nashville in late May to make a spot start after pitchers Chris Narveson and Marco Estrada went down with injuries, Fiers stuck with the team and became one of the Brewers' most reliable starters over the summer.

PHOENIX One of the more interesting questions facing Brewers manager Ron Roenicke this spring is who to bat in the leadoff position in 2013. In second baseman Rickie Weeks and right fielder Nori Aoki, the Brewers have two different, but effective possibilities to consider."Rick and Nori are the two options and there are pros...
