• Players and staff expressed sadness Wednesday as word spread about Gamel, the former Brewer who was released by the Braves the day before. Gamel was Milwaukee's starting first baseman before he suffered a season-ending ACL injury in 2012, then re-tore the same ligament during the Brewers' first full-squad workout of 2013 and missed another full season. The Braves released him after Gamel re-injured the knee during a workout before the start of Spring Training.
Nobody deserves that much pain, Roenicke said.
"No, they don't," he said. "To not have a chance to play in the Major Leagues … because of an injury, it's tough."
• Some Green trivia: His mother is best friends with actress Kim Cattrall, best known for her roles in 1980s films like "Mannequin" and "Big Trouble in Little China," and for her role as Samantha in HBO's "Sex and the City." "Aunt Kim," as Green knows her, was a neighbor of Green's mother, Jackie.
