Aramis Ramirez Takes US-41 to Milwaukee

by Jason Epstein

A bounce-back season helped free-agent third baseman Aramis Ramirez secure a three-year commitment from the Brewers believed to be worth $34-37 million. With Ramirez on board, Milwaukee will feature a new left side of the infield in 2012, having recently signed shortstop Alex Gonzalez to a one-year deal.

Playing on the North Side last season, Ramirez posted a .373 wOBA with 26 home runs in 626 plate appearances for the Cubs.
