UPDATE: Adam McCalvy reports that Ramirez is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his knee tomorrow. It sounds like he could be dealing with an extended absence.

9:46 PM: According to Adam McCalvy of, Ramirez has a sprained left knee. As mentioned below, he dealt with the same issue during spring training, so this isn’t good news for the Brewers.

9:42 PM: The Brewers were already without Ryan Braun tonight due to neck spasms, but now they have lost another one of their important bats.

According to Adam McCalvy of, Aramis Ramirez was forced to exit tonight’s game against the Diamondbacks after just four innings. The exact nature of the injury isn’t clear, but he came up limping after he unsuccessfully tried to stretch a single into a double. Yuniesky Betancourt replaced Ramirez in the lineup to play first base while Alex Gonzalez was forced to make his first career appearance at third base. Yikes.

It’s worth noting that Ramirez was limited during spring training due to a sprained left knee. The Brewers will have to hope he didn’t aggravate things, as they are running out of bodies.

    I’ll take the sprain because I figured it was going to end up being another Brewer with a torn ACL.

      A torn ACL is a sprain. If it’s completely torn then it’s a 3rd degree sprain, partial tear is a 2nd degree sprain and stretching or mild tear is 1st degree sprain. Hopefully Ramirez only has a 1st or 2 degree MCL sprain like in Spring Training. You can come back from that relatively quickly as long as there is no other damage. It is concerning that is the second time he hurt it in this young season though.

    No Hart/Ramirez is very bad news for the Brew Crew. Hopefully we can put something together to survive.
