Gamel and Scarpetta make BA's Hot Sheet

link

No. 6

MAT GAMEL, 3B BREWERS
Team: Triple-A Nashville (Pacific Coast)
Age: 23
Why He's Here: .346/.424/.731 (9-for-26), 3 HR, 1 2B, 12 RBIs, 5 BB, 6 SO
The Scoop: It looks like Gamel will be a Hot Sheet regular for however long he stays in Triple-A. The Brewers' hard-hitting third baseman is already up to five home runs through only 14 games and has reached base at least once in every game but one. He's second in the PCL in both home runs and RBIs with 22. This week, Gamel homered in three consecutive games and had three games with three or more RBIs.

HELIUM WATCH

CODY SCARPETTA, RHP BREWERS
Team: low Class A Wisconsin (Midwest)
Age: 20
Why He's Here: 0-0, 1.50, 6 IP, 3 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 10 SO
The Scoop: Scarpetta's career has already taken some unusual turns. The Brewers snagged him in the 11th round of the 2007 draft out high school and signed him for $325,000, only to void that deal when he needed a second surgery on his right index finger. The club re-signed him for $125,000 instead, but had to add him to its 40-man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft. Scarpetta finally got to make his pro debut in rookie-ball last fall and has handled his first full-season assignment well this year. He's only allowed two earned runs in 11 2/3 innings over his first three appearances and has been piling up strikeouts (18) thanks to a heavy low to mid-90s sinker which he can back up with a 12-to-6 curveball and an improving changeup.
