Aramis Ramirez is in the Pirates lineup and batting cleanup against the Nationals on Saturday.

It'll be the first time that the 37-year-old has taken the field as a member of the Pirates since he was traded during the 2003 season. Prior to the trade, Ramirez was hitting .247/.295/.430 with 11 homers and 42 RBI in 81 games for the Brewers.
Jul 25 - 3:29 PM

Pirates acquired 3B Aramis Ramirez and cash considerations from the Brewers for RHP Yhonathan Barrios.

And just like that, Ramirez is back where it all started. With both Josh Harrison and Jordy Mercer sidelined, the Pirates were in need of some infield depth and Ramirez has been swinging the bat better of late, though he has an underwhelming .247/.295/.430 batting line on the year. Still, he now has a chance to go out a winner with the team who signed him.
Jul 23 - 5:34 PM

Craig Calcaterra of HardballTalk reports that the Pirates are trading for Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez.

Meanwhile, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that the Pirates are close to an agreement on a deal. Ramirez, of course, was originally signed by Pittsburgh and played his first six seasons in the majors with the club, so he'd be coming full circle to finish out his career. The 37-year-old is batting .247/.295/.430 with 11 home runs and 42 RBI over 81 games this season and would give Pittsburgh some depth with Josh Harrison sidelined. He's still owed around $6 million for the remainder of the season.
Jul 23 - 5:15 PM

Aramis Ramirez went 3-for-3 with a homer and two RBI in Saturday's 8-5 win over the Pirates.

Ramirez hit a solo shot in the bottom of the fifth inning and an RBI single in the bottom of the sixth as the last-place Brewers took a second straight game from the hard-charging Bucs. The veteran third baseman has a disappointing .243 batting average and .294 on-base percentage this season, but he has managed 11 home runs and 41 RBI in 78 games. He'll probably be on the move as the July 31 trade deadline approaches.
Jul 18 - 10:58 PM

FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Mets have had recent trade talks with the Brewers regarding Aramis Ramirez and Jean Segura.

The Mets have been connected to both names before, but it had appeared that a fit wasn't likely. However, it looks like talks may have been rekindled as the Mets' offense continues to sputter. Ramirez would give New York some more sock at third base with David Wright's (back) status up in the air, while Segura would finally offer them a long-term answer at shortstop.
Jul 10 - 11:34 AM

Aramis Ramirez went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a stolen base in Tuesday's win against the Phillies.

Ramirez staked the Brewers to an early 2-0 lead with a two-run single in the first inning. He tacked on an important run with an RBI single in the eighth, which tied the game at 3-3 at the time. He's had a miserable 2015 season but has still drawn some trade interest. Ramirez is hitting .222/.261/.413 with nine home runs and 33 RBI.
Jun 30 - 11:53 PM

Aramis Ramirez is out of the Brewers' starting lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Mets.

It's just a day of rest for the veteran third baseman. Hernan Perez is starting at the hot corner.
Jun 25 - 10:18 AM

Aramis Ramirez is not in the Brewers starting lineup on Saturday.

Ramirez went 3-for-5 with a homer in Friday's victory, but he'll get a day to rest on Saturday afternoon against Chad Bettis. Hernan Perez will start in his place at the hot corner and bat seventh for the Brewers.
Jun 20 - 12:15 PM

Aramis Ramirez went 3-for-5 with a solo home run and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Rockies.

Ramirez also singled and doubled. The 36-year-old isn't the same player he once was, with a .220/.256/.405 batting line on the year, but he still has some pop in his bat and could come in handy for a contender.
Jun 20 - 12:49 AM

Aramis Ramirez is not in the Brewers' lineup Sunday.

The red-hot Ramirez is just getting a blow. Hector Gomez is at third base in his place.
Jun 14 - 10:43 AM

Aramis Ramirez doubled three times and knocked in five runs in Friday's win over the Nationals.

Signs of life from Ramirez. After putting the Brewers on the board with a two-run double in the first inning, he knocked in another run with a double in the third before hitting a second two-run double in the fourth. The 36-year-old is batting just .223/.263/.406 with seven home runs and 24 RBI over 51 games this season. He's likely to be traded at some point this summer, though the Mets reportedly don't see him as a fit right now.
Jun 13 - 12:50 AM

Aramis Ramirez went 0-for-4 and committed an error at third base in Thursday's game.

Ramirez isn't doing much to enhance his trade value, what with his .211/.253/.380 line on the season. He did drive in a run on a groundout tonight, at least.
Jun 11 - 11:55 PM

According to CBS Sports' Jon Heyman, the Mets don't see Aramis Ramirez as a fit right now.

Marc Carig of Newsday reported Wednesday that the Mets had been "weighing" a trade for the Brewers' veteran third baseman, but it sounds like those talks are already over. Ramirez is batting just .216/.258/.389 in 49 games this season for Milwaukee and he's pulling in a $14 million salary. The 36-year-old does still have some power and will probably be on the move at some point this summer.
Jun 11 - 1:11 PM

Marc Carig of Newsday reports the Mets are "weighing" a trade for Aramis Ramirez.

There has been speculation abound in recent days that the two teams could match up, with the Mets looking to deal a starting pitcher and the Brewers having expendable pieces. Ramirez, of course, announced before the start of the year that the 2015 season would be his last, so it would be purely a rental for the Mets as they await David Wright's return. It's unclear who the Mets would send to the Brewers in a potential deal. Ramirez is hitting a paltry .213/.257/.390 on the year.
