(8/17/14) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke told reporters following Sunday's win against the Dodgers that third baseman Aramis Ramirez has been battling hamstring tightness, according to FOX Sports Wisconsin.

(8/14/14) The Brewers are throwing a skeleton lineup at the host Cubs on Thursday afternoon. Standouts Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez and Jean Segura are all out of the lineup.
Braun has been slumping with just five hits in his last 34 at-bats and no home runs since July 24. Segura has also struggled recently to the tune of a 3-for-18 slide and no extra-base hits since Aug. 2. Ramirez is batting .200 in his last five games.
|Aramis Ramirez continues heat-up with three-hit game |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/2/14) A 2-for-27 slide is becoming more of a distant memory for Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez in the wake of another big game Friday night.
Ramirez went 3 for 5 and smashed his first home run since July 22 to vault his team to an important win in St. Louis. His blast set off the scoring and his run-scoring double in the third inning put him halfway to a cycle, for which he fell just a triple short. Ramirez has seven hits in his last four games.
|Aramis Ramirez to continue career past 2014 season |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(7/23/14) Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez, who appeared in his 2,000th MLB game Wednesday, said he has decided to continue his career past the 2014 season, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
"I'm going to go for 2,500 (games) so let's see what happens," Ramirez said. "I'm only 36; I'll be OK. I'm playing past this year, for sure. I don't know how much longer but definitely more years. I'll see where I'm at after the season but I feel good right now. Health is the main thing. My body is telling me I can still play."
Ramirez has a mutual option for $14 million for next season. If Ramirez exercises the option and the Brewers decline, he gets a $4 million buyout.
"That, I don't think about," he said. "I don't really like to talk about contracts during the season. They haven't approached me about anything, either, so we'll see what happens.
"I like it here. It's the reason I came here. I have no regrets. I've had a great three years here. I've liked it. It's a good place to play baseball. A great stadium; we have a roof (so) I don't have to worry about the conditions. A good team. We just missed the playoffs my first year here. This year, we're in the pennant race. So, we have a good team and it was the right choice."
|For most of 2013, Aramis Ramirez had the look of a player whose 35 years had caught up to him. He was battling knee injuries that an early DL stint couldn't remedy and slugging less than .350 as late as mid-August. But that's about the time he returned from his second DL stint -- this one lasting a good six weeks -- and apparently, it did the trick. In 123 at-bats after returning Aug. 13, Ramirez was as good as ever, hitting .301 with seven homers and a .916 OPS. So does that explain everything? Unfortunately, it's not that simple. Entering his age-36 season, Ramirez is still at the edge of a cliff. Just because he found a foothold late in 2013 doesn't mean the fall isn't coming. Plus, who's to say it won't be his hamstring that holds him back next time? Or his calf? Older players get hurt. It's just a fact of life. Ramirez's strikeout rate is still on the low end among full-timers, which suggests his skills haven't diminished too much. If you can draft him in the middle-to-late rounds to man your corner infield spot, he might prove to be a bargain. Just understand plenty of risk comes with that reward.
