    The Hardball Times had a breakdown on Mat Gamel today (among others)...doesn't really go into his defense much, but have you heard anything about his defense so far this year?

    Gamel made 53 errors last year, from what I remember, and then an additional 10 in 30 games while in Winter Ball.

    I've yet to hear anything about his defense this year, but considering how poor of a defender he was a little while back, I can't imagine he'd vastly improve in such a short span of time.

    yep he's right. but don't expect Tui to make it to MLB. He's just not that great.

    Brewers 3B prospect. Excellent line drive hitter; terrible, terrible glove.

    Yeah, that's a good comparison.

    Except Braun has more HR power and Gamel's more disciplined at the plate, and is also more of a gap hitter. Aside from that, yeah, I think they're relatively similar.

    Gamel's Stats this year not off to a great start but should be better later on. 53 errors last year in 128 games. This year he is working with a couple of great defenders Don Money and someone else I cant remember right now and has 4 errors in 13 games this year. Which (him playing in 130 games) turns out to be 40 errors which is an improvement and I expect him to improve through the season as well.

    So how about Gamel now? Leads the Southern League in BA (.375), 2nd in OBP (.433), 1st in SLG% (.612), 1st in OPS (1.045), 3rd in homers (15), 1st in doubles (33) and 1st in total bases (233).

    I don't think anybody questions Gamel's bat.

    You obviously haven't read this whole thread. Here's what Cubsrule had to say about Gamel on page 3.

    My view is based on age, repeating levels, his highest OPS of .850, which came in high A as a 21 year old, and career high of 17 homeruns. He's obviously not a legit prospect, and likely won't make or break a deal. He would be a decent throw in, I can agree with that.
