Gonzalez ahead of schedule in rehab from surgery
MIAMI -- The Brewers may have made the bulk of their September callups already, but manager Ron Roenicke didn't rule out the possibility of seeing a more familiar face toward the end of the season.

According to Roenicke, shortstop Alex Gonzalez, who underwent surgery to repair a torn right ACL on May 17, is ahead of schedule in his recovery. Gonzalez has been with the team while it's playing the Marlins in Miami, and Roenicke said the shortstop has been working in the batting cages, fielding ground balls and running, though not at full speed.

"That would be a question mark," Roenicke said of a possible return for Gonzalez this year. "He's ahead of schedule, so I don't want to say no. He's probably got an appointment in a couple weeks, and if the doctor says he's ready to go, then we'll have to rethink what we're doing."

While it's uncertain if Gonzalez will see the field again this season, first baseman Mat Gamel's status is clearer. Gamel is also recovering from a torn right ACL.

"Mat will not be ready," Roenicke said. "Physically he won't be ready [to return]."
