Hart off DL, Gamel recalled
The Brewers made a pair of expected roster moves on Tuesday morning, activating right-fielder Corey Hart off the disabled list and recalling third baseman Mat Gamel from Triple-A Nashville. Hart has not played in the Majors since Aug. 1, the day before he underwent an appendectomy, but as I wrote in my preview of tonight’s Brewers-Cardinals game, it didn’t take him long to get in the swing of things at Triple-A Nashville.
Gamel struggled for Nashville after a midseason stint in the Majors, but rallied late in the season to finish with a respectable .278 batting average. Brewers officials will have to decide this winter whether he’s ready to make the jump to the big leagues, but fellow third baseman Casey McGehee is playing so well right now that playing time this month could be tough to get.
