Mat Gamel Injury: Brewers First Baseman Leaves First Spring Workout After Aggravating Knee Injury

Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

Gamel is returning from ACL surgery on his right knee, but didn't make it through today's workout

There isn't a lot of information available, but Mat Gamel started the full team workout doing running drills and didn't make it further than that. He apparently spoke with assistant athletic trainer Dave Yaeger, rode a cart back to the facilities and didn't return.

The Brewers say he aggravated the knee and they are being extra cautious with his return from the ACL tear and surgery.

Adam McCalvy wrote about Gamel and his return this week, focusing on Gamel's use of a heavy brace on the knee.

Gamel had hoped to have the knee healthy enough to play in Winter Ball, but that didn't happen and instead of pushing it, he and the team have been especially careful with the rehab, making sure he was at full strength.
