Indians Come to Terms With FA Outfielder Ben Gamel

The Indians have another body in the mix to help out in the outfield to start camp in 2021, as Jon Heyman reports the team has come to terms with lefty outfielder Ben Gamel.

Gamel in six Major League seasons has played with the Seattle Mariners, New York Yankees and Milwaukee Brewers.

Last season in 40 games of the shortened 60-game season Gamel hit .237 with three homers and 10 RBI for the Brewers.

In his last full season back in 2019 with Milwaukee he hit .248 with seven homers and 33 RBI.

His best season as a pro came back in 2017 with the Mariners in Seattle when he hit .275, clubbing 11 homers and driving in 59 runs.

While he’s played all three positions in the outfield over his Major League tenure, he’s mostly played in the two corner spots.

Gamel joins the likes of Jordan Luplow, Oscar Mercado, Bradley Zimmer, Jake Bauers, Eddie Rosario, Daniel Johnson and Franmil Reyes looking for playing time in the outfield.
