The Milwaukee Brewers can't afford any more knee injuries. They already have Corey Hart sidelined for a good chunk of time and Mat Gamel out for the season. Now, Aramis Ramirez has a knee injury of his own. The veteran third baseman had to leave yesterday's game in the third inning after injuring his knee.
Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel says the injury is a strain and Ramirez should only miss a couple of days. He injured the knee when he came into second base on a double in the third. Manager Ron Roenicke said Ramirez jammed his leg into the second base bag.
Ramirez is playing the second year of his three-year contract with Milwaukee. Prior to that, he played with the Chicago Cubs for nine years. Ramirez's consistency has allowed him to stick with teams for a long time. The only other team he has played for is the Pittsburgh Pirates.
In his career, Ramirez is a .285/.343/.503 hitter. Last season with the Brewers, his second-straight season in which he was healthy and hit well, Ramirez hit .300/.360/.540 with 27 home runs.
