Brewers | Knee bothering Aramis Ramirez

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez (knee) said his injured left knee has caused him to slump at the plate lately. "I'm not 100 percent, and everybody knows that," Ramirez said. "I'm not healthy. It's a little tougher to play when it's like that, but I have no choice." He has been rested regularly and is serving as the designated hitter this week. Ramirez plans to keep playing through the pain unless it become unbearable.

Fantasy Tip: It sounds as if Ramirez wouldn't be surprised if he landed back on the disabled list at some point. You should prepare for that possibility if you're using him as your starting third baseman. Have backup options readily available.
