Brewers 3B Ramirez leaves game with strained knee

Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez has left a spring

training game against the Los Angeles Angels with a strained left

knee.

Ramirez snapped an 0-for-10 skid to start the spring with a

bloop double down the left-field line in the third inning

Saturday.

After time was called, Ramirez stepped off the bag and was met

by the team trainer before walking slowly back to the dugout. He

will be re-evaluated on Sunday and is day to day.

It was Milwaukee’s third significant piece of injury news

Saturday. Right-hander Yovani Gallardo was scratched from his

scheduled start Sunday with tightness in his groin, and left

fielder Ryan Braun was out of the lineup with a bruised left

knee.
