      Gamel still out for season

      The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said the second opinion on Mat Gamel's injured right knee confirmed the original diagnosis. Gamel will need surgery to repair his ACL again and will miss the 2013 season. "He needs to have it done," Roenicke said. "He's just working out who's going to do it and where. That's kind of important to him."

      Gamel out for entire 2013 season

      Milwaukee first baseman Mat Gamel is expected to miss the entire upcoming season after he re-tore his right ACL during workouts over the weekend, reports. It's the latest blow for the tough-luck Gamel, who missed the last five months of the 2012 season with the initial ACL tear. An MRI exam Monday revealed the latest injury, but it is not considered career-threatening. The Brewers were already thin at first base as Gamel was projected as the leading candidate to fill in for Corey Hart while he recovered from knee surgery. General manager Doug Melvin said the team will look internally for a replacement -- most likely Hunter Morris -- while also seeking outside options.
