Brewers sign Aramis Ramirez to 3-yr deal

Quote:
Former Chicago Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramirez will sign a three-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, pending a physical, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Ramirez played the last eight-plus seasons with the Cubs. He hit .306 with 26 home runs and 93 RBIs and won the Silver Slugger award as the top offensive third baseman in 2011

With Prince Fielder being a free agent and Ryan Braun facing a 50-game suspension for failing a drug test, the defending NL Central-champion Brewers made a pre-emptive strike to boost their offense.

Ramirez is a Type B free agent, which means the Cubs receive a draft pick between the first and second rounds of the 2012 draft.

They receive the draft pick because they offered to go to arbitration with Ramirez, who declined.

Ramirez also declined a $16 million mutual option for the 2012 season. By offering to pick up the option, the Cubs saved themselves a $2 million buyout.

Good move for the Brewers. Hoping he stays healthy.

This helps so much. Casey McGehee has been awful at 3B both for batting (the past two years anyways) and fielding. If Ramirez stays healthy this is a solid move for the Crew.
