The Brewers made the announcement from their official Twitter account.
Gamel was a Little Leaguer when his older brother Mat starred at their alma mater, Bishop Kenney High School in Jacksonville, Florida. The younger Gamel was barely 13 when his older brother was selected in the fourth round of the 2005 draft by Milwaukee, according to the
YES Network in New York.
Gamel had his best offensive season in 2018 with a .358 on-base percentage. The 22-year-old Zavolas had a 3.03 ERA and 41 strikeouts in 38 and two-thirds innings in the minors last season.
