Brewers' Ryan Braun, Aramis Ramirez out of lineup Sunday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) 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.

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.

"Everything so far has gone as well as I could have possibly hoped. Hopefully, the next few weeks it continues to do the same and we can stop talking about it at some point in the near future."

Braun will not be limited during spring training, but admitted he'll keep an eye on how many swings he's taking. Braun put in more work than usual during the offseason, and said his thumb felt "really good." 

While health is the key, Braun expressed confidence in his ability to regain his status as a top player in the league. "I've always felt like if I'm healthy, success is inevitable," he said. "I think most of us would feel the same way. As long as I'm healthy, I expect to go out there, be productive and do the things I've always done."

Braun hit .266/.324/.453 over 530 at-bats last year.
