Gamel to undergo second ACL surgery


PEORIA, Ariz. -- After getting a second opinion, Brewers first baseman Mat Gamel will undergo surgery on Friday to repair a torn right ACL for the second time in less than a year.

Gamel had the same procedure last May and missed the rest of the season, then re-tore the same ligament on Feb. 16 and will miss all of 2013.

Gary Waslewski, a team physician for the Arizona Cardinals football team and Phoenix Coyotes hockey team, will perform Gamel's surgery in Scottsdale, Ariz., with Brewers head physician William Raasch assisting. Raasch performed Gamel's surgery last year.
