Brewers Place Aramis Ramirez On 15-Day DL

According to Adam McCalvy at, the Milwaukee Brewers will place Aramis Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list before Tuesday night’s series-opener versus the Pirates.

Ramirez was lifted from the Brewers’ game Saturday against the Yankees after straining his left hamstring while ranging for a groundball on the infield.

It’s a standard hamstring strain — not minor, but not severe — and will likely sideline Ramirez for around three weeks. Mark Reynolds and Jeff Bianchi are expected to fill in at third base while he is out.

Ramirez, 35, has batted just .252/.309/.390 in 34 games played this season, though he does have five home runs and 21 RBI.
