MILWAUKEE A report by Bruce Levine of ESPNChicago.com says the Brewers have reached agreement with free agent third baseman Aramis Ramirez on a three-year contract.
Ramirez, 33, spent the last eight seasons with the Chicago Cubs and compiled a .294 average with 239 home runs, 256 doubles and 806 RBI. Last season, he hit .306 with 26 home runs and 93 RBI. The Cubs had reportedly sought to trade the slugger at the deadline last season, but Ramirez did not want to waive his no-trade clause.
Ken Rosenthal of FOXSports.com has reported that the deal is between 34 and 37 million.
The deal cannot become official until Ramirez passes a physical.
