Latest Update Aramis Ramirez (hamstring) is in the Brewers' starting lineup on Tuesday Tue Aug, 19, 05:16 PM
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.

The Brewers are parking a number of their starters on the bench for Thursday's afternoon game against the Cubs. Mark Reynolds will handle the work at the hot corner instead.Analyst: Howard Bender
Ramirez recorded his third muti-hit night in a row, and over the past five games he is batting 10-19. This is nice to see after Ramirez encountered a small slump in which he went 1-17. Ramirez has been very solid this season; that was his 51st RBI to go along with 13 HR and a .286 average.Analyst: Ben Diamond
Ramirez has turned up his production of late, going 7-for-20 with two extra-base hits, three RBI and three runs scored over his last six games. Now sitting on a .280 average with 13 home runs and 50 RBI through 307 at-bats, Ramirez has still been a solid fantasy contributor despite missing time due to injury earlier in the season. The Brewers third baseman is now 22-for-53 (.415 BA) with three home runs and eight RBI against the Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright. Analyst: Matthew Beck
