MILWAUKEE Another day, another player heading to the disabled list for the Milwaukee Brewers. The team announced shortly after their 7-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Friday that shortstop Cesar Izturis will be sent to the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring. Infielder Edwin Maysonet will return to the Brewers from Triple-A Nashville to take his place. Since filling in for injured shortstop Alex Gonzalez, who is out for the season with a torn ACL, Izturis has started in 15 games for the Brewers. He was batting .200 with one home run and four RBI in 2012. Trying to score on a Corey Hart single, Izturis pulled up awkwardly after hitting third base, choosing not to go for home, despite the go signal from third base coach Ed Sedar. Izturis reached for the back of his left leg and immediately left the game after Brewers manager Ron Roenicke came over to check on him. "It looked like when he hit the bag, I could see him pull up right away," Roenicke said. Recent signee Cody Ransom, who was designated for assignment by Arizona on Monday, will likely step in and play a majority of the Brewers games at shortstop with Izturis out. In his debut with the Brewers on Friday, as Izturis' replacement, Ransom tallied a hit and a run, while striking out in his second at-bat. Izturis becomes the latest injury in an onslaught of health issues that have plagued the Brewers all season long. The team has already lost Gonzalez, pitcher Chris Narveson, and first baseman Mat Gamel for the season, while pitcher Marco Estrada, center fielder Carlos Gomez, and now Izturis, have all spent time on the DL. For Roenicke, the amount of injuries has clearly been a source of frustration. "It's been crazy," Roenicke said. "(We) can't even enjoy wins." There was some concern that, after being hit by a pitch against the Diamondbacks, that third baseman Aramis Ramirez could also be injured, as he left the game late in favor of utility infielder Taylor Green. However, Roenicke said that Ramirez's injury -- a knot on his left elbow, as he called it -- is just "day-to-day." Follow Ryan Kartje on Twitter.
