Shoulder sidelines Gamel again
Brewers third baseman Mat Gamel took a line drive off the knee in the first inning of Monday’s game against the Mariners at Maryvale Baseball Park. But that’s not what knocked him out of the game two innings later.
Gamel exited with a sore right shoulder, the same problem he reported last week before he was held out of the team’s first three Cactus League game days. He also had shoulder soreness last spring but said the other day that the current problem is different.
Brewers manager Ken Macha wouldn’t hazard a guess as to how long Gamel would be out.
“We have to get this nipped in the bud,” Macha said.
