Gamel a scratch with sore shoulder

The Brewers scratched third baseman Mat Gamel from the lineup for Thursday’s Cactus League opener against the Giants after the prospect reported a sore right shoulder after batting practice. 
Casey McGehee, the projected Opening Day starter who was supposed to have Thursday off, played instead. Brewers manager Ken Macha said that Gamel’s injury was not considered serious but that he would get a few days off before trying to play. 
Gamel also missed some time early in camp last year with a sore right shoulder. 
The Brewers have remained relatively injury-free so far this spring, though Macha reported that right-handed pitching prospect Josh Butler continues to be stalled by a sore arm. Butler was penciled in to pitch either Friday or Saturday, but the club will instead give him a few more days to rest.
