(Hunter Morris; Jordan Megenhardt/MLB.com) 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 optimistic about his future with the team. That optimism went out the window early Monday morning when Tom Haudricourt reported that Mat Gamel would miss the entire season with a torn ACL. It really shouldn’t surprise anybody that Gamel is again sidelined with an injury because he’s had a worse injury history than Ben Sheets, but this is probably the worst possible time for him. He had that second opportunity to prove that he can be counted on as the future first-baseman of the team. However, after this injury it’s doubtful we’ll ever see him back as a starter after two straight ACL injuries. With Gam...

Brewers Wednesday: Gamel 'not real happy'

Morris Lobby Overlooks Halton’s Perfect Fit

Welly welly well, Mike Carp was dealt to the Red Sox for a PTBNL or cash, which likely proves the Brewers decided not to match or exceed that meager return for the former-Mariner first baseman/DH.  The Brewers had basically said as much Tuesday, indicating they’d try to fill the first-base hole internally.  What the Brewers seem to be looking for, in between the lines, is a stop...

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. Gamel was pulled from that workout after "tweaking" his knee once while stretching to make a play at first, and again...

Milwaukee Brewers: 3 Up and 3 Down

Another tough break for Gamel

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...

Rogers hopes injuries in rearview mirror
