Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez will meet with the team this week to determine how often he will be used this season. Ramirez will get at least one off day a week and possibly more time off based on the schedule, but it will also depend on how good he feels and how hot his bat is.
Fantasy Tip: The club wants to avoid leg injuries reoccurring like last year, but as long as you select Ramirez on the cheap in lower rounds of drafts you won't be wasting a pick. He still has a little bit left in the tank.

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Luis Jimenez will get first crack at the third-base job as backup to 3B Aramis Ramirez. Ramirez is in his final season with the Brewers.
Fantasy Tip: This is vital for the Brewers because Jimenez's fantasy value ties in to Ramirez's overall health. If you draft Ramirez in your leagues in a late round, you may want to grab Jimenez as a "handcuff" pick if he makes the club and is used at third.

Milwaukee Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez, who will likely play his final season in 2015, could be given more time off this year, according to manager Ron Roenicke. Ramirez said he's hoping to play between 140 and 145 games this season. Ramirez is a career .285 hitter with 369 home runs, 1,342 RBI and an OPS of .840.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez, 36, has had plenty of big seasons in the past. The problem is he's failed to reach the 20-homer mark each of the last two seasons while dealing with leg issues. Don't expect him to return to 20 dingers in 2015, but you can buy low on him in the later rounds and have some room for a profit.

Fantasy Tip: A-Ram has been dogged by injuries the last two seasons as he has averaged 13.5 homers and 57.5 RBIs. At this stage, he's a low-end third baseman or corner infielder with minimal upside in his age-37 season.
