12/3 Gamel seeks fresh start
Mat Gamel was looking forward to playing for the Cubs. When I talked to him in October in Mesa, Ariz., shortly after he joined the team, Gamel said he was finally healthy after re-tearing his right ACL in Spring Training.
“I think it’ll be good for me,” Gamel said in October about the change of scenery. “I’ve been with the Brewers for eight years. I don’t know any other organization. Maybe this will be a fresh start.”
Gamel, though, was non-tendered on Monday by the Cubs. He is now a free agent and could re-sign with the team but it would have to be a Minor League contract.
