Brewers Injury Update: Aramis Ramirez dealing with minor hamstring tightness

By on 8/18/2014 11:00:00 AM

Originally, when Aramis Ramirez left Sunday's game early, it was said to just be a manager's decision, but Tom Haudricourt is now reporting that Ramirez is dealing with some hamstring tightness.
 With two off days in the upcoming week, the minor injury appears to have happened at the right time for the 36-year-old third baseman.  Mark Reynolds, the team's starting first baseman, shifted to third in Ramirez's absence and would be expected to see a majority of time there if Ramirez needed extra rest.

Last season, Ramirez battled a knee injury throughout the season and was only able to play in 92 games.  But this season, with a mutual option looming, Ramirez is proving that he is not done.  Through 98 games, he has batted .298 with 13 home runs and 56 RBIs.

When healthy, he has been a driving force in the Brewers offense.  Age aside he is still one of the most feared third basemen in all of baseball.  Earlier in the season he stated that he would like to play for a few more years, it will be interesting to see if those years will be in Milwaukee.
