Latest Update Aramis Ramirez not in Brewers' lineup Sunday Sun Jul, 27, 11:36 AM
Owns both bat speed and the ability to make consistent contact, helping him hit for both a high average and excellent run production. Is clutch and doesn't strike out a lot.
Flaws: : Has been injury-prone throughout his career. Lacks consistency with the glove at the hot corner. Would benefit greatly by taking more free passes.
Ramirez has been on fire of late, going 11-for-24 (.458 BA) with three homers, eight RBI and six runs scored over his last six games. Although the Brewers third baseman missed some time due to injury earlier in the season, he is still slashing .296/.344/.507 with 11 home runs and 40 RBI through his first 203 at-bats. He has shown little since of his age (36) up to this point, so consider him a top tier option at the hot corner until he proves otherwise. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Just a day of rest after a long, 16-inning extravaganza followed up by an early afternoon game. Mark Reynolds will move across the diamond to handle the work at third while Lyle Overbay gets the nod at first base. Analyst: Howard Bender
Ramirez is raking of late as he has a four-game hit streak going in which he has two or more hits in each of them for a .471 average (8-for-17), including having homered in back-to-back games to wrap up the weekend series in Colorado.Analyst: Michael Pichan
