Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez likely to retire after 2015 season
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/27/15) Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez said Friday the 2015 season will likely be his last in the majors. The 36-year-old Ramirez is entering his 18th season in the majors and fourth with the Brewers.
"I don't want a multi-year deal. I wasn't looking forward to that. I'm comfortable here," he said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
"I'm going to play this year and probably be done after this year. I don't know if I want to play after this year. I think this is it. We'll see what happens, but I don't think I'll play after this year.
"It's more of a family thing. I've got three kids, I've been playing for a long time, been away for a long time. Sometimes it's just time to do something else."
Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said he is not surprised by Ramirez's announcement.
"We anticipated that anyways," he said. "It's not stunning. I think when he accepted our deal to come back that was probably a message. He didn't go out on the market. He's always said it's never been about the money."
Ramirez made the All-Star team in 2014 for the third time in his career. He has a career .285 average, .344 on-base percentage, .496 slugging percentage and .840 OPS.
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke eyeing infield depth this spring
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/25/15) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke will spend spring training judging his infielder's versatility for depth behind Jean Segura and Scooter Gennett, per MLB.com.
Milwaukee has three shortstops on its 40-man roster with the chance to break camp with the big-league club. Hector Gomez, 26, and Luis Sardinas, 21, are expected to see time at second base behind Scooter Gennett.
"We want to give Scooter a chance against lefties, but if there's a day off we want to give him, or if it works out that we need to have a [right-handed hitting] guy there more often, who's it going to be?" Roenicke said. "Is it going to be Sardinas? Jimenez, because we know he hits lefties well? Who's that other guy who's going to be there?"
Yadiel Rivera, 22, should see some work at third behind Aramis Ramirez.
Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez could see more time off in 2015
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/21/15) Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez could see fewer games in order to preserve his health for the full season, according to Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Manager Ron Roenicke said that giving Ramirez some more days off will help get the most out of his play.
Ramirez has dealt with numerous injuries the last few years and is 36 years old. Ramirez appeared in 133 games a year ago.
Aramis Ramirez exercises option to return to Brewers
|(11/3/14) Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez will return the Brewers for the 2015 season after exercising his option Monday. The Brewers had already opted into their portion of the $14 million mutual option.
Ramirez will return to the team after hitting .288 with 15 home runs and 66 RBI in 2014.
"He is comfortable in Milwaukee, and obviously Aramis has made a lot of money in his career and he has invested wisely and is in very good shape (financially)," said Ramirez's agent, Paul Kinzer, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He told me he wants to control his own destiny. He'll decide after next year if he wants to keep playing."
Brewers exercise option on 3B Ramirez, await his decision
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/31/14) The Brewers have exercised their end of a mutual option on veteran third baseman Aramis Ramirez, per CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman. He has three days to do the same on the $14 million deal.
They 36-year-old Ramirez continued to produce this season with a stat line of .285/.330/.427 and 66 RBI in 494 at-bats.
|2014 summary: Just like in 2013, Aramis Ramirez's 2014 got off on the wrong foot because of injury, this time to his hamstring. But unlike in 2013, he didn't have the crazy finish to lull you into thinking he might still be elite if he could only stay healthy. He wasn't bad, hitting .285, but the continued regression of his on-base and slugging percentages dropped his OPS about 80 points to a Trevor Plouffe-like .757.|
Playing time status: Ramirez has never been a model of health, but each of his last two Brewers seasons has been defined by a nagging injury. Last year, it was his hamstring. In 2013, his knees. At age 36, he's at the point where a DL stint doesn't really do the trick anymore.
2015 outlook: While many of the most trustworthy Fantasy options of the last decade-plus have simply dropped off a cliff in their mid-30s Ramirez's regression has been a slow and steady one, but it's pretty much impossible to deny now. Between that and the injury risk, you shouldn't count on Ramirez for much in mixed leagues. He's still decent on a per-game basis in Head-to-Head points leagues, but of course, you can't expect to use him every week.
