Alex Castellanos > Mat Gamel

A very interesting option just hit the waiver wire (or is about to). The Cubs would be crazy not to put a claim in on Alex Castellanos. Alex (who is not related to actual prospect Nick) Castellanos is exactly the type of guy the Cubs should be trying to get to fill the bottom of the 40-man. Like Mat Gamel, he is a former prospect (well, sort of, in Alex's case) who just never...

What Are Brewers' Best Options at First with Gamel Out?

(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...

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...

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...

Mat Gamel Tweaks Knee, Brewers Depth Gets Thinner

 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...
