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.

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Mat Gamel (knee) aggravated his surgically-repaired right knee during the team's first full-squad workout Saturday, Feb. 16. He was held out of baseball activities Sunday, Feb. 17, but manager Ron Roenicke is hopeful that he can resume practicing Monday, Feb. 18. Minor league 1B Sean Halton was brought in to cover drills due to Gamel's absence and could remain in big league camp for a few days.

Milwaukee Brewers 1B Mat Gamel will need to work out in the outfield and at third base because when 1B Corey Hart (knee) returns from his knee surgery, Gamel won't be the starting first baseman, according to manager Ron Roenicke. 1B Hunter Morris could be brought up if Gamel struggles before Hart returns. Morris will open the season at Triple-A Nashville after hitting .303 with 28 home runs, 40 doubles and 113 RBIs last year at Double-A Huntsville.

Even though the Milwaukee Brewers plan to give 1B Mat Gamel the bulk of the playing time at first base while 1B Corey Hart (knee) is sidelined, Gamel will also see time at third base and in the outfield during spring training in order to be ready for Hart's return. "When Corey comes back, Corey is going to be our first baseman," manager Ron Roenicke said.
