Gamel's $2.55 team option was declined by the Brewers on Friday, though he remains a member of the team as he's still arbitration eligible, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports. The Brewers could seek to bring Gamel back at a lower dollar figure, though he could also potentially be non-tendered. His .245/.331/.381 slash line in his two seasons as a Brewer is passable for a bench player but not good enough for a regular starter on a contender.
The Brewers reinstated Gamel (quadriceps) from the 10-day injured list Wednesday ahead of Game 1 of the team's wild-card series with the Dodgers, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com reports. Milwaukee cleared a spot for Gamel on the 28-man active roster by omitting star reliever Devin Williams, who will be sidelined for the three-game series with a right shoulder injury. Gamel, who slashed .237/.315/.404 over 127 plate appearances in the regular season before suffering the left quad strain, is expected to serve as a fourth outfielder for Milwaukee during the wild-card round.
Gamel (quadriceps) will work out Tuesday to determine his availability for the Wild Card Series, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Gamel was sidelined for the final week of the regular season with a quad strain, but manager Craig Counsell didn't rule him out for the first series of the playoffs. He'll take part in several drills Tuesday that could determine whether he's healthy enough to play in the Wild Card Series, which runs from Wednesday to Friday.
Gamel (quad) was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Gamel's injury has been diagnosed as a quadriceps strain, and it will indeed cost him the remainder of the regular season. The team's hottest hitter coming out of summer camp, Gamel ended up slashing just .237/.315/.404 with three homers in 127 plate appearances. Tyrone Taylor and Jace Peterson are now the team's top reserve outfielders.
Gamel was removed from Friday's win against the Royals with a quadriceps injury, Todd Rosiak of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Gamel entered the game in the bottom of the fourth inning to replace Ryan Braun (back), but he suffered an injury of his own during the contest. In his postgame press conference, manager Craig Counsell said that he isn't sure whether Gamel will be available for Saturday's contest.
