3B Ramirez likely headed to DL for Brewers

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez appears headed to the disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

The veteran slugger got hurt fielding a bouncer in the fourth inning of Saturday's 5-4 win over the New York Yankees. Ramirez had been showing signs of breaking out of a slump after singling and hitting a high homer to left earlier in that game.

Ramirez said it was the first hamstring injury of his 16-year career. Manager Ron Roenicke said before Sunday's game against the Yankees that the team was planning on a disabled list stint for Ramirez.

Outfielder Ryan Braun (right oblique) is eligible to come off the disabled list for Tuesday's game against Pittsburgh. Roenicke said he was unsure whether Braun might need a rehab game or be ready right away.
