Onetime top Brewers prospect Mat Gamel was among the first Spring Training arrivals this year, and that’s a good thing He’s going to be busy.
Manager Ron Roenicke said Gamel would see spring action at the corner outfield spots and first base in addition to his usual duties at third base. He’ll be among the players considered for an Opening Day spot on the Brewers’ bench.
“The guy can hit,” Roenicke said. “So if he can make us believe he can play a lot of positions, it helps him in making teams.”
Is he open to embracing that role?
“I haven’t have enough conversations to really know that answer,” Roenicke said, “but you would think that if you’re in his shoes, you would be open to anything.”
