Assistant general manager Gord Ash made the announcement Monday.
The 27-year-old was injured May 1 at San Diego when he hit a wall while chasing Nick Hundley's foul popup, cutting short his season after 21 games.
Gamel reinjured the knee during the first week of spring training and a MRI revealed the tear.
Corey Hart, who moved to first base after Gamel's injury last year, is on crutches after right knee surgery on Jan. 25 and is expected to be out three-to-four months.
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said candidates to play first until Hart returns include Alex Gonzalez, Hunter Morris, Bobby Crosby, Taylor Green and Sean Halton.
