News: Gamel (knee) signed a minor league contract with the Yankees earlier this week, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.
Impact: Gamel has seen his career bottom out since emerging as a top prospect in the Brewers' system following a massive 2011 campaign at Triple-A Nashville, during which he slashed .310/.372/.540 with 28 homers. However, he never received much of a chance to test his game in the majors, as he lost back-to-back seasons due to ACL tears and was released by the Braves last spring after suffering a setback in his recovery. At this point, the 29-year-old's hopes of reaching the majors again appear to be slim, but he could provide the Yankees with some quality organizational depth at the Triple-A level.
