Mat Gamel Let Go By The Braves

Gamel

The Braves have released Mat Gamel, reports David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Gamel — who was at one time slated to be the starting first baseman for the Brewers — has had two ACL surgeries and apparently reinjured his knee last week during personal workouts.

Gamel was a top prospect for years, took too long to get it together at the major league level, and since them just hasn’t been able to catch a break.
