Ramirez to run the bases
Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez is pain-free and hoped to remain so Monday, when he ran his sprained right knee through its toughest test yet.
“Today, I’m going to move around a little bit more,” Ramirez said. “Take grounders to the sides and run the bases, so I’ll have a little bit better idea today where I am.”
Ramirez,who was injured sliding into second base on March 2, took batting practice and fielded grounders on Sunday with no ill effects. He planned to add lateral movement to his field work on Monday, and the biggest test will come when he runs the bases. Ramirez was to do his work on a back field at Maryvale Baseball Park.
“Everything is going good,” Ramirez said. “I don’t feel any pain right now, so I’m going to do some more stuff today and see how it feels.”
