In need of some pop, Brewers will reportedly sign Aramis Ramirez
Enter, Aramis Ramirez. Ramirez will reportedly sign a three-year contract with Milwaukee pending a physical. He come to the Brewers from just down the interstate in Chicago and the rival Cubs.
Last season Ramirez hit .306 with 26 home runs.
With Fielder likely gone, and Braun perhaps suspended, Ramirez will be expected to be an anchor in the middle of the Milwaukee lineup along with outfielder Corey Hart and second baseman Rickie Weeks. Regardless of whether Braun wins his appeal, Ramirez is a nice consolation for Milwaukee losing Fielder.
