Graham, Mark Lamm, Cody Martin, Yunesky Maya, Daniel RodriguezGus Schlosser, Atahualpa Severino, Shae Simmons and Ian Thomas; catchers Matt Kennelly, Steven Lerud, Braeden Schlehuber and Jose Yepez; outfielder Matt Lipka; and infielders Mat Gamel, Phil Gosselin, Tyler Greene, Mark Hamilton and Edward Salcedo.

The Braves' first-round pick in the 2013 amateur draft, Hursh allowed two earned runs in 27 innings while striking out 15 and walking 10 at Class A Rome in his first season with the organization.

La Stella, who could compete for a starting role at second base, hit .343/.422/.473 with four home runs, 41 RBI and seven stolen bases in 283 at-bats with Double-A Mississippi last season.

by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(12/9/2013) The South Florida Sun Sentinel reports that the Marlins are considering free agent Mat Gamel as a potential starting third baseman. Gamel has not played since May 2012, as he has torn his ACL twice.

The Cubs non-tendered Gamel last week after having claimed him off waivers from the Brewers earlier this fall.

(10/3/2013) The Cubs have claimed first baseman Mat Gamel, according to ESPN.

Gamel did not appear in the majors this season due to an ACL tear. He received just 69 at-bats the previous season after suffering through an ACL injury. Gamel has hit .229/.305/.367 in 269 plate appearances in the majors. 


Brewers place Mat Gamel on waivers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2013) The Brewers have placed first baseman Mat Gamel on waivers rather than restore him to the 40-man roster, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

Gamel, who has been sidelined since tearing an ACL on May 1, 2012, is a career .229/.305/.367 hitter with six home runs and 29 RBI in 240 at-bats. He remains on the team's 60-day disabled list.

Gamel still out for season


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2013) The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said the second opinion on Mat Gamel's injured right knee confirmed the original diagnosis. Gamel will need surgery to repair his ACL again and will miss the 2013 season. "He needs to have it done," Roenicke said. "He’s just working out who’s going to do it and where. That’s kind of important to him."

Gamel out for entire 2013 season


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2013) Milwaukee first baseman Mat Gamel is expected to miss the entire upcoming season after he re-tore his right ACL during workouts over the weekend, MLB.com reports. It's the latest blow for the tough-luck Gamel, who missed the last five months of the 2012 season with the initial ACL tear. An MRI exam Monday revealed the latest injury, but it is not considered career-threatening. The Brewers were already thin at first base as Gamel was projected as the leading candidate to fill in for Corey Hart while he recovered from knee surgery. General manager Doug Melvin said the team will look internally for a replacement -- most likely Hunter Morris -- while also seeking outside options.

Gamel has setback with knee


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2013) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said first baseman Mat Gamel was held out of baseball activities Sunday because he aggravated his surgically repaired right knee Saturday. Roenicke is hoping it will only be a short absence. “It won’t be full go, we’ll just get him out there and acclimate him to the different things going on,” Roenicke said. “It’s unexpected just because he’s gone through this period of time where he really hasn’t has any issues with it. But probably not unexpected because it is different once you get on the field and now you’re doing different exercises with agility, with fundamentals. You’re doing different things on the knee that you’re not doing in a controlled environment.”

Gamel braces for another chance


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(2/16/2013) Brewers first baseman Mat Gamel has not been short of opportunities during his dull major-league career. This season is no different as the former top prospect is the leading candidate to replace Corey Hart at first base for the start of the season while Hart recovers from knee surgery. It's a role reversal for Gamel, who tore a knee ligament after just 21 games last year and missed the rest of the season. "I would say I'm pretty close," he told MLB.com about his status. "The more I'm doing, the more confident I'm going to be with everything. I'm just looking at it like I got another opportunity." Gamel did cut short his workout Saturday as the team remains cautious about his recovery, but showed no concern.

Gamel 'ready to go'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2013) The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Brewers assistant general manager Gord Ash said first baseman Mat Gamel, who finished the 2012 season on the disabled list after blowing out his knee in May, said he was checked by doctors Sunday and "is ready to go."

Gamel an option at first base


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/22/2013) The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is formulating a plan for first base while Corey Hart goes for a second opinion on his injured knee. One option Roenicke is comfortable with is Mat Gamel, who was playing first base in 2012 before he exited the lineup in May because of his own knee injury. "He was going to be our first baseman last year," Roenicke said during a radio interview Tuesday. "When he went down, we really thought he was playing well. So, he’s certainly the guy we’re looking at. If the knee is OK, we’re really comfortable with Mat doing that job."
