Brewers Sign Ramirez to Three-Year Deal

| No Comments

With the potential departure of first baseman Prince Fielder to free agency and NL MVP Ryan Braun facing a possible 50-game suspension for testing positive for PEDs, the Milwaukee Brewers needed some offensive insurance.
On Wednesday, the Brewers finalized a three-year, $36 million contract with free agent third baseman Aramis Ramirez, according to ESPN.com. Despite the possible departure of Fielder and Prince, Ramirez feels a takes all facets of the game to win.
"You're going to miss those guys if Ryan Braun is suspended," said Ramirez. "But I think you win with pitching."
The 33-year-old Ramirez played 149 games for the Chicago Cubs last year. He also produced, batting .306 with 26 home runs and 93 RBIs.
"You're probably not ever going to totally replace Prince," Brewers General Manager Doug Melvin said. "But these are some big numbers that he's put up."
