Great news for Brewers fans came at the cost of another cornerstone of the struggling franchise. Ryan Braun was taken off the disabled list but at the cost of Aramis Ramirez going on the DL. Milwaukee placed third baseman Ramirez back on the 15-day disabled list Monday with a sprained left knee. Left fielder Braun was originally expected back later this week.
Braun has missed 22 games since June 9 because of an inflamed nerve in his right hand. Assuming no setbacks in batting practice, he expected to start in tonight’s game against the Reds.
