Aramis Ramirez was lifted from the Brewers’ game Saturday against the Yankees after straining his left hamstring while ranging for a groundball on the infield and will be placed on the 15-day disabled list before Tuesday night’s series-opener versus the Pirates, according to Adam McCalvy at MLB.com.
It’s a standard hamstring strain — not minor, but not severe — and will likely sideline Ramirez for around three weeks. Mark Reynolds and Jeff Bianchi are expected to fill in at thrid base while he is out.
Ramirez, 35, has batted just .252/.309/.390 in 34 games played this season, though he does have five home runs and 21 RBI. He finished the 2013 campaign with a .283/.370/.461 batting line, 12 home runs, and 49 RBI in 92 games — missing a large chunk of time because of a left knee injury.
