Brewers activate Ryan Braun, place Aramis Ramirez on disabled list

The Brewers have activated outfielder Ryan Braun for tonight’s game against the Reds while third baseman Aramis Ramirez is back on the disabled list for the second time this season due to a left knee injury.

Braun has been sidelined since June 9 due to a right thumb contusion. The 29-year-old slugger has been making progress in recent days, but his return comes as a bit of a surprise, as he originally wasn’t expected to be activated until at least Thursday. While he is active for tonight’s game, Adam McCalvy of MLB.com notes that he will not be in the starting lineup.

Ramirez is headed back to the disabled list after he aggravated his knee while making a diving stop at third base during Saturday’s game against the Mets. The 35-year-old missed nearly a month of action between April and early May with a left knee sprain.

    Why can’t these reports come out on Sunday instead of Monday after lineups beefing locked

    My player notes via Yahoo Fantasy Sports informed me that he’d be activated tonight. Don’t rely on NBC Sports for fantasy news.
