Brewer Daily News for April 7th: Prince up, Brewers lose again


Good morning everyone and welcome to the Sunday edition of Brewer Daily News. Yesterday, the Milwaukee Brewers placed third baseman Aramis Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list and called up outfielder Josh Prince. In the second bit of news, the Brewers lost to the Arizona Diamondbacks last night.

With Ramirez on the disabled list, he becomes the sixth Brewer on the list for the 2013 season. Ramirez’s injury doesn’t look to that serious to where it could play into the long term of 2013, but still the team must be cautious.

"“It could have been worse,” said Ramirez, “Last night, I didn’t feel good. There’s never a good time for injuries, but at least it’s not that serious, I guess.” – via"

Prince, 25, made his major league debut last night in left field as Ryan Braun is day-to-day with neck stiffness. In his debut, Prince went 0-for-2. While slotted as an outfielder, Prince will be used in a utility role for the infield and outfield.

Last night, the Brewers fell once again to the Diamondbacks 9-2. Mike Fiers started for Milwaukee and went five innings while giving up six runs, nine hits and struck out only one. Alfredo Figaro came in the game later for relief and gave up three runs (two unearned) and four hits in two innings of relief. Patrick Corbin started for Arizona and went six innings while giving up two runs, eight hits and struck out two. Corbin would get the win and Fiers would get the loss.

The Brewers’ only runs of the game came in the first and second innings. In the bottom of the first, Alex Gonzalez hit a sacrifice fly to score Norichika Aoki. In the bottom of the second, Jean Segura doubled to center and that scored Khristopher Davis. Milwaukee committed three errors in the game.

This afternoon the teams will wrap up this three game series at 2:10 p.m. ET / 1:10 p.m. CT. The starters will be Yovani Gallardo for Milwaukee and Ian Kennedy for Arizona.
