Gonzalez likely the first choice


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2013) In a repeat of last season, one of the Brewers' biggest question marks heading into the 2013 campaign is their uncertainty at first base. Milwaukee was trying to fill the void left by Prince Fielder last season, but is now seeking options to replace Mat Gamel after he went down with a crushing knee injury last month. The team's regular first baseman, Corey Hart, is expected to miss the first month of the season. So, naturally, a viable replacement at first would be shortstop Alex Gonzalez, who has played all 1,559 games in his MLB career on the left side of the infield. "You either have good instincts or you don't," manager Ron Roenicke told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Alex has really good instincts."

Gonzalez could be on first


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(2/9/2013) With first baseman Corey Hart (knee) expected to be sidelined for the start of the regular season, the Brewers are likely to turn to Mat Gamel as his replacement for the first month. But Alex Gonzalez, who has played exclusively at shortstop during his career, could also receive playing time at the position. "I don’t think Gamel will be in there every single day. I’m hoping Alex (Gonzalez) can play some first base," manager Ron Roenicke told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Saturday. "I’m going to talk to him about that. He could stay sharper and get some more at-bats if he can play first base, especially against tough left-handers."

Brewers bring back Gonzalez


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/29/2013) Free agent shortstop Alex Gonzalez agreed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal with Milwaukee Tuesday. He was the Brewers' opening day starter last year but played only 24 games before tearing his right ACL and missing the rest of the season.
