Yankees Sign Mat Gamel

The New York Yankees added a little more depth today at first base when the team signed Mat Gamel, brother of Ben Gamel. Ben is a Yankees farmhand and will now welcome his brother and former top prospect to the club. There was no mention of whether he will be coming to Yankees spring training camp or not but it's a safe bet to say that he is sooner than later.

Gamel hasn't played since the 2012 season after numerous knee injuries included torn ACL's in recent seasons. If Gamel is finally healthy it's not outside the realm of possibilities that he could be a nice addition to the lineup in June or a nice trade piece in July, not a big league option though right now in my opinion.
