Cubs | Mat Gamel claimed off waivers

The Chicago Cubs claimed 1B Mat Gamel off waivers from the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, Oct. 3. Gamel hasn't played since May of 2012 after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee twice.

Fantasy Tip: Gamel is a low-risk investment for the Cubbies that could potentially yield a high reward. Third base was his original position, so expect him to compete for a roster spot there in spring training. It'll all depend on how healthy his knee is, but don't completely forget about this guy if he wins the job.
