MILWAUKEE (WITI) — Milwaukee Brewers manager Ron Roenicke announced on Monday, February 18th that infielder Mat Gamel will miss the entire 2013 season with a knee injury.

The Brewers website says Gamel was held out of baseball activities on Sunday, February 17th, a day after he aggravated his surgically repaired right knee in the team’s first full-squad workout.

The website says, “Roenicke said Gamel first felt something in his knee while stretching, then felt it again while swinging the bat. Gamel conferred with a member of the club’s athletic training staff and was taken back to the clubhouse for examination.”

The Brewers brought in another first baseman, 2009 Draft pick Sean Halton, to cover Gamel’s absence in Sunday’s drills. Halton could remain for a few days.
