Mat Gamel is out for at least 45 days after tearing up his shoulder. He's been out of commission since the second week of March, and that puts his return around ten days into April. There will be no competing for third base.
It was a bad day all around for Milwaukee. Brewers batters struck out 16 times, and Manny Parra gave up five runs. Brewers lose to the Rangers 6-4. A bright spot in this story is Yovani Gallardo's pitching.
Yovani played four great innings back on March 16th. She struck out five in that game. This year, Gallardo wants to be the opening day starter. He was under too much pressure last season, and this year he wants the nod.
