The Chicago Cubs claimed 1B Mat Gamel off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, Oct. 3. Gamel hasn't played since May of 2012 after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee twice.
Fantasy Tip: Gamel is a low-risk investment for the Cubbies that could potentially yield a high reward. Third base was his original position, so expect him to compete for a roster spot there in spring training. It'll all depend on how healthy his knee is, but don't completely forget about this guy if he wins the job.

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Mat Gamel (knee) will miss the 2013 season because of a knee injury.
Fantasy Tip: Gamel was going to start at first base while Corey Hart (knee) was out of the lineup, but the team will now need to find another player to fill that role. Taylor Green may be next in line for the job and could be considered as a late-round pick in deep leagues. Hunter Morris is one of the team's prospects that could also be an option if he plays well during spring training.
