Brewers activate Braun, put Ramirez on DL

Posted: Updated:
MILWAUKEE (AP) -

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.
