Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez accepted the $14 million mutual option that the club had exercised on Friday, which means he’ll be back at third base for the Brewers next season.
Ramirez had just finished a three-year, $36 million free-agent deal that included a mutual option. If the Brewers declined their half of the option, there would have been a $4 million buyout. If Ramirez had declined the option, he would have become a free agent.
Ramirez hit .285 with 15 home runs and 66 RBI in over 133 games this past season. He missed about a month of the season with a hamstring injury.
Ramirez turns 37 next June and is heading into his 18th Major League season.
