Braun is back, Ramirez to the DL

The Milwaukee Brewers welcomed back outfielder Ryan Braun to their lineup last night.

Braun was reinstated from the 15-day disabled list and inserted into the third spot in the batting order after an oblique strain that he suffered back in late April.  He went 0 for 2 with a walk.

The Brewers made room on the roster by placing third baseman Aramis Ramirez on the 15-day DL with a strained left hamstring.  There’s no timetable on Ramirez’ return, but the DL move was retroactive to May 11.

The Brewers also recalled Elian Herrera from AAA Nashville and optioned outfielder Caleb Gindl back to Nashville.
