Brewers' Aramis Ramirez, Martin Maldonado return to the lineup
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/27/15) Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez and catcher Martin Maldonado will return to the lineup Monday against the Reds, the team announced.
Ramirez will replace Hector Gomez at third, who gave Ramirez the day off Sunday. He is hitting just .197 with six RBI in 61 at-bats this season. Maldonado started five consecutive games before getting the day off Sunday. Maldonado is hitting just .167 in 24 at-bats.
The Brewers are currently the underdogs (+105) against Cincinnati.

Brewers' Martin Maldonado gets first start after Lucroy goes on DL
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Brewers catcher Martin Maldonado was in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Reds. It was his third start and first since the Brewers placed Jonathan Lucroy on the disabled list due to a broken big toe on his left foot.
Maldonado will likely see the bulk of playing time at catcher with Lucroy sidelined. He entered play Tuesday hitless in nine at-bats.
Brewers' Ryan Braun bats leadoff for first time in career
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/18/15) Brewers right fielder Ryan Braun was slotted in the leadoff position in the team's starting lineup on Saturday, the first time in his career he's batted leadoff.
The Brewers' lineup had other major changes on Saturday. Martin Maldonado will bat seventh and catch, in just his fourth game of 2015. Regular catcher Jonathan Lucroy replaces Adam Lind at first base.
"Trying to do something different, getting [Braun] sparked," Roenicke said to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "He's had better at-bats, but just to get his mind off some things and maybe on something else. Then also, I think he is swinging the bat better. He's just not getting hits. Put him in a little different atmosphere. Hopefully he can get on base for us and have the other guys drive him in."
Hector Gomez gets the start at second base, batting sixth. He replaces Scooter Gennett.
Logan Schaefer is in center field, batting eighth. It will be his first start of the season.
Brewers' Lucroy, Gennett not in starting lineup Sunday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/12/15) Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy and second baseman Scooter Gennett are not in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates.
Lucroy is getting a break from starting Sunday after opening the season just 1 for 20, and Martin Maldonado will take his spot behind the plate. Manager Ron Roenicke said he isn't worried about Lucroy's slow start, the Journal Sentinel reports.
"Luc has had some good at-bats," Roenicke said Sunday. "He stayed on a breaking ball and hit a bullet to second yesterday. The day before he lined out to short. So he’s had some good at-bats. The first couple days he was lost, then he started swinging the bat again. I like what he’s doing."
With Lucroy out of the lineup, Jean Segura will move to the No. 2 slot, and the manager indicated that Segura's early-season performance made his choice for the spot easy.
"The way he’s been swinging it, yeah," Roenicke said. "Other than that, I don’t what I would have done. Sometimes you slip in a Khris Davis or somebody else. But Seggy, the way he’s swinging, he’s perfect."
Gennett is out of the lineup for the second straight game after getting ejected Friday for slamming his bat to the ground on a called strike three when the team had no backup infielders on the bench. Hector Gomez will get a second straight start at second base after going 2 for 3 Saturday.
The Brewers are favorites (-120) against the Pirates Sunday.
