Brewers' Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez out of lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/26/15) Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun and third baseman Aramis Ramirez are out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.
"It's not something I want to do, rest them," manager Ron Roenicke said, per MLB.com. "I need these guys in here playing, trying to win. But when someone tells me they need a day off, they need a day off."
Braun had started 15 straight games in right field coming into Sunday's action, but he'll get his first break from starting since April 8. He has hitjust .230/.277/.279 with one home run and four RBI in 61 at-bats.
"He's pressing like everybody is," Roenicke said. "They're frustrated they're not seeing better results. I think he's had a lot of really good at-bats but he doesn't have much to show for it."
Ramirez has started 16 of the team's 18 games at third base but will take a seat after making four straight starts. He's hit just .197/.197/.295 with one home run and six RBI in 61 at-bats.
"It's tough to do with both of them," Roenicke said. "You guys saw the lineup today. It's quite a bit different. In games we feel like we have to do everything we can to win, it's not what I want to do."
With Braun out of the lineup, Logan Schafer will play center field and bat second, while Gerardo Parra while shift to right field and bat third. Hector Gomez draws the start for Ramirez and will bat seventh.
The Brewers are home underdogs (+135) against the Cardinals Sunday.
Jean Segura, Aramis Ramirez both pound three hits for Brewers
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/25/15) The woeful Brewers lost again Saturday night, but they can take at least a bit of solace that two of their key players had big games.
Both leadoff hitter Jean Segura and veteran third baseman Aramis Ramirez slammed two singles and a double.
The effort of the latter was particularly encouraging. Ramirez has emerged from a four-game hitless streak to hit safely in four of his last five. The multi-hit game was only his second since the opener.
Segura, on the other hand, has been pretty much raking all year. He has been the subject of trade rumors and his hot hitting can only raise his stock.
Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez still planning to retire after season
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/24/15) Even with the Brewers slow start to the season, veteran third baseman Aramis Ramirez is not rethinking his plans to retire after the season, per MLB.com.
"This is going to be my last year, regardless of what happens," Ramirez said. "Regardless of what happens to me and regardless of what happens to the team. That has nothing to do with my decision. I've already made my decision, and this will be my last year."
Ramirez hit his first home run of the season Thursday against the Reds, but he is still batting just .167 through 15 games.
"It's not working right now," he said, "but all I can do is show up and keep trying."
Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez nails first homer Thursday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/23/15) Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez certainly appears to be fading at age 36, but his bat can still be lethal on occasion.
The Reds were reminded of that Thursday when Ramirez hit a homer off Homer (Bailey) in the fifth inning. It was his first time he blasted off this year.
Ramirez is still struggling along with a slash line of .167/.167/.259. But he has showns signs of emerging from his slump with three hits in his last eight at-bats.
Brewers' Aramis Ramirez, Gerardo Parra in the starting lineup
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/22/15) Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez and outfielder Gerardo Parra will start Wednesday against the Reds, the team announced.
Ramirez, who got the day off Tuesday and was replaced by Jason Rogers, is hitting just .149 with two doubles and three RBI in 47 at-bats. Parra is back in the lineup after Logan Schafer got the start Tuesday. Parra is hitting .161 with three doubles and two RBI in 31 at-bats this season.
|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.
