Brewers' Braun activated from DL

Brewers get Braun back, put Ramirez on DL

The Milwaukee Brewers have activated slugger Ryan Braun from the disabled list and placed third baseman Aramis Ramirez on the DL with a nagging left knee injury.

Braun has been out for a month with a bruised right thumb. He was not in the lineup for the opener of a three-game series against Cincinnati, but he planned to test his hand again in batting practice and could be available to pinch-hit.

The 2011 NL MVP is batting .304 with nine homers and 36 RBIs in 57 games this season.

Ramirez sprained his left knee on April 5 and was placed on the DL the next day. He was sidelined for a month, but the injury has lingered.

The move for Ramirez is retroactive to Sunday.
