|Shorstop Alex Gonzalez, out for the year with a torn ACL, is just one of many key Brewers to go down with injuries in the early part of this season.|
First baseman Mat Gamel, who was supposed to try and help fill the extra large void left by the departure of team leader Prince Fielder, is out for the season with a torn ACL. Shortstop Alex Gonzalez, the team's best defensive infielder and one of its most consistent hitters so far this year, is out for the season with a torn ACL. Starter Chris Narveson is out for the season with a torn rotator cuff in his throwing shoulder. Center fielder Carlos Gomez, who's been playing the best baseball of his career early this season, will be out for a couple more weeks. Ryan Braun, last season's MVP, is currently playing with a sprained achilles. The injury bug seems to have built a nest and is constantly buzzing around in the Brewers clubhouse. In which direction should the team look to replace its injured starters? I'm sure GM Doug Melvin has his own ideas, but here are my suggestions, whatever they're worth.
