MILWAUKEE, WI (LEARFIELD-WSAU) M-L-B-Dot-Com says the Milwaukee Brewers have placed infielders Mat Gamel and Taylor Green on waivers. If they clear waivers, both will be eliminated from the team’s 40-man roster today.
Gamel missed all of this season and most of last year with a torn A-C-L knee ligament that he injured twice during that span. Green also sat out all year due to an injured hip that required surgery.
If they clear waivers, Gamel and Green can sign with another team – or it’s possible they can return by signing minor-league contracts for 2014. Both players remain on the Brewers’ 60-day disabled list. Neither is on the 40-man roster at the moment – and that roster is full.
