Braun in, Ramirez out for Brewers

Gindl, Herrera also switch spots
Braun in, Ramirez out for Brewers

One slugger back, one slugger down for the Milwaukee Brewers.

Outfielder Ryan Braun has been activated from the 15-day disabled list after being sidelined with a right oblique strain. He was available for Tuesday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Third baseman Aramis Ramirez was placed on the disabled list with a strained left hamstring. He got hurt fielding a bouncer in Saturday night’s 5-4 win over the Yankees.

Milwaukee on Tuesday also optioned outfielder Caleb Gindl back to Triple-A Nashville and recalled utilityman Elian Herrera, who was batting .359 in the minors.

Herrera’s versatility should help if outfielder Carlos Gomez has to begin a suspension this week for his role in a benches-clearing scrum against the Pirates in April.

Milwaukee expected to hear soon from the National League about Gomez’s appeal.
