Found September 14, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
It’s been a tough season injury-wise for Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez and the team in general. Things didn’t get any easier last night for the veteran, as he was forced to exit after getting hit by a pitch on the left wrist. Ramirez was diagnosed with a bruised wrist, and he told reporters – including Adam McCalvy of MLB.com – that he feels he should be OK in the next few days. "I should be OK in the next few days," Ramirez said. "You never want to be hit around the hand, but if you are, I got hit in the right place. I got hit in the wrist, and that's a big bone in there." Ramirez took a 93-mph fastball off his wrist, but he was able to remain in the game until the next half-inning when he was replaced at third base by Jeff Bianchi. The Brewers expect to be without Ramirez today, and it’s unclear how much longer he’ll be sidelined by the wrist injury. Ramirez’s season has largely been limited by injuries, mostly due to a right-knee ailment he suffered during spring training and aggravated throughout the year. On the year, the 35-year-old has hit .267/.361/.440 with 17 doubles and 10 home runs over 316 plate appearances. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Thornburg continued the trend Thursday by allowing two runs over six innings to...

Brewers' Kyle Lohse stymies Reds in complete-game effort

MILWAUKEE -- As Kyle Lohse began sending batters back to the visiting dugout again and again, he knew he hadn't pitched out of the stretch in quite some time.
