Mat Gamel will need a second surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament he first injured crashing into a wall in San Diego last May 1. Gamel was chasing down a foul ball when he collided with the wall. After 8 months of rehabilitation, Gamel arrived at the Milwaukee Brewers spring training site in Maryvale and reported soreness in the knee. An MRI on Sunday found the repair did not take hold and the ligament will require more reconstructive surgery. Gamel had been expected to handle the Brewers first base job because Corey Hart underwent knee surgery in January and is not expected back for the first two months of the season. Now Milwaukee is scrambling to find a starter. Last year's shortstop, Alex Gonzalez, may get a shot. Free agent Bobby Crosby, the American League rookie of the year in 2004 with Oakland may also get a look although he hasn't played major league ball for the past two years. Taylor Green played a couple of games at first last season. The best bet might be Hunter Morris. The former Wisconsin TimberRattler was Milwaukee's minor league player of the year last season, hitting over .300 with 28 home runs and 113 runs batted in for AA Huntsville.
