MILWAUKEE -- While his return from the disabled list is imminent, Aramis Ramirez won't be the one filling the roster spot vacated when outfielder Khris Davis was optioned to Triple-A on Wednesday. Instead it will be Jeff Bianchi, as the Brewers have reinstated the infielder from the 15-day disabled list, joining the team in time for Thursday night's game against St. Louis. Bianchi, 26, was placed on the disabled list on March 27 after battling hip bursitis during spring training. The hip injury limited Bianchi to just eight spring training games and forced him to withdraw from the World Baseball Classic, as well. Making his Major League debut last season with the Brewers, Bianchi hit .188 with three home runs and nine RBI in 33 games. His ability to play shortstop, third base and second base will give the Brewers another versatile option off the bench. Bianchi began a rehab assignment with Double-A Huntsville on April 13 and hit .250 with one home run and seven RBI in 15 games between the Stars and Triple-A Nashville. The allotted time on his rehab assignment was set to expire Friday, meaning the Brewers had to add him to the active roster by then or designate him for assignment. Follow Andrew Gruman on Twitter.

Extra work pays dividends for Brewers' Weeks

Peralta unlucky as Cardinals bat around in third inning

MILWAUKEE -- It was just one of those days for Wily Peralta. One inning filled with a whole lot of bad luck left him with a pitching line unworthy of how he pitched.

The Cardinals scored all six of their runs in a 6-5 victory off Peralta with two outs in the third inning...

Gonzalezs short-term memory has served him well

MILWAUKEE -- The game of baseball offers quite a few moments that are bizarre and sometimes just plain unlucky. Michael Gonzalez's relief pitching debut with the Brewers on April 3 certainly qualified as both. After Gonzalez walked the leadoff hitter, a perfect bunt single followed putting two on with nobody out. Rockies left fielder Carlos Gonzalez followed with a broken bat...

Brewers try to avoid third straight loss at Miller Park

Re-evaluating the Zack Greinke trades for the Brewers and Royals

When the Milwaukee Brewers acquired Zack Greinke from the Kansas City Royals in late 2010, it was a sign that the Brewers were going “all in” for the 2011 season. The haul they gave up appeared costly at the time, headlined by Milwaukee’s starting shortstop and defensive whiz Alcides Escobar. They also threw in outfielder Lorenzo Cain, and pitchers Jeremy Jeffress and Jake...

First Pitch: The Road to Contending Goes Through Milwaukee

For the past two years I’ve had the same thought about the Milwaukee Brewers and what they say about the Pirates’ chances. The thought is always “if the Pirates can beat the Brewers, they’ll show they are legit this year”. Last year the Pirates went 4-11 against Milwaukee, including a 1-8 record in the final two months of the season. They went 3-6 on the road at Miller...

Pirates 6, Brewers 4

THOSE were the Pirates we came to know and love during the past few weeks. After falling behind yet again at Miller Park, the Bucs pulled off a big comeback and managed to shut Milwaukee down late to get out of Wisconsin with a rare victory.
