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.

Gomez is headed back to Milwaukee on Thursday for more tests, per MLB.com. After Thursday's game, the Brewers head to Pittsburgh for a three-game series.

"Certainly we're not going to see him out there [Friday] or the next day, so it is," manager Ron Roenicke said. "When you talk about a leadoff guy who can do what he can do, and in center field, yeah, it's concerning. We know offensively we need to get things going, and we're losing a guy who has a chance to do a ton for you offensively."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braun suffered a ribcage strain in Monday's loss and was set to be re-evaluated Tuesday. Gerardo Parra will take his place in right field and bat sixth against Jordan Lyles and the Rockies.

“Got an MRI, very encouraged by the results," Braun said, per the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "Hopefully it’s something that’s only a day or two. It’s something I’m happy about.

“If I had to guess, I would say it’s more intercostal than it is oblique. But I’m not a doctor."

Manager Ron Roenicke said before Tuesday's game that he hopes Braun will be back in the lineup Wednesday.


Brewers test out Gerardo Parra at first, Luis Jimenez at catcher


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/29/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke is checking out his options around the field defensively this spring, reports MLB.com. Regular outfielder Gerardo Parra is getting some work at first base and third baseman Luis Jimenez is being looked at as an emergency catcher.

"Trying to figure out what can happen during ball games," Roenicke said. "If [Parra's] really good at it and Lind's down for a couple days, you just don't know. He looks great. He works at it all the time. Getting him more experience with all the situations that can come up in a ball game."

Jimenez caught a bullpen session Sunday and is competing for a bench role.

"If he's going to be on our squad, it's nice to have somebody who can do that job," Roenicke said. "He's been going out and warming up pitchers between innings. He's pretty good at it."


Gerardo Parra to get work at first base for Brewers


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2015) Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said last week that he had to find ways to get Gerardo Parra in the lineup. One of those options will be at first base. 

Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that Parra will be working at first base as an "emergency option", despite never having played an inning at the position in his career. 

“The manager ask if I want to play first base and I say yes,” Parra said.

"He takes ground balls there all the time. He did last year, too. He told me last year he could play first," Roenicke said.  


Brewers' Roenicke working on ways to get Gerardo Parra into lineup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2015) Brewers outfielder Gerardo Parra seems fine with his role as a reserve outfielder, despite being a Gold-Glove-caliber defender.

"No, I'm happy," he said of his situation, per MLB.com. "I don't think nothing like that, like we have a lot of outfielders. The only thing is working and playing every day and doing my job.

"I say again, if I don't play every day, I won't feel bad. If I do play every day, I will be happy too. My job is to play baseball in a Milwaukee uniform to do the best I can."

Brewers manager Ron Roenicke loves Parra's attitude. He added since Parra can play all three outfield positions, he will do his best to work Parra into the lineup.

"He's really got a great attitude, but he wants to be out there," Roenicke said. "In my mind, if I had got him 200 at-bats this year, he'd be disappointed. He's a better player than that and we need to get him out there.

"I told you guys before, usually when you give your three guys a day off, it's because they really need to have it, but it's not that way with Parra because, for me, Parra is a starter. So I consider him a guy that, if the matchups are good for him, he's going to be in the game. I'm not waiting for somebody to be tired and has to have a day off. It's going to be different with him."
