PLAYERS: Mat Gamel
TEAMS: Milwaukee Brewers

 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 to a full tea set after a series of cups-of-coffee with the Brewers, dating back to 2008.  The lefty swinger from Jacksonville, Florida, suffered a torn knee ligament, which led to season ending surgery last May.  His injury prompted the Brewers to move Hart from the outfield to first base, where he flourished.  Now penciled in as Harts' understudy, Gamel was forced to leave the Phoenix practice field Saturday where the Brewers were holding their first full-squad workout.  Todd Rosiak reports in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that Gamel had aggravated his surgically repaired right knee.  Assistant general manager Gord Ash, through a team spokesperson, said the team is being cautious with Gamel and his recovery early in camp.  Starting third baseman Aramis Ramirez has the only other first base experience amongst the Brewers 40-man roster.

Mat Gamel re-tears ACL, out for another season

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.

As Hart heals, Brewers will test out fill-ins

By JOHN PESETSKI Special to FOXSportsWisconsin.com PHOENIX For the second straight season, the Milwaukee Brewers are opening camp with questions at first base.

Ramirez looking to get out to quicker start

By Andrei GreskaFOXSportsWisconsin.com 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. "I'm a...
