Ramirez is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Phillies.

Ramirez was pinch run for late in Sunday's game, and his rest will extend through Monday as well. The veteran continues to struggle at the plate, but did hit a leadoff double that sparked the Brewers to a victory Sunday. He should continue to serve as the everyday third baseman in Milwaukee, but will likely receive regular days off given his age.

Ramirez is out of the lineup Sunday against the Nationals.

Ramirez followed up Friday's five-RBI evening with an 0-for-4 performance, bringing his June batting average down to .190. The veteran third baseman is known to hit in bunches, but it was likely time for a regular day off. Hector Gomez will take over at third base, but Ramirez should be available to pinch hit, if needed.

Ramirez went 3-for-4 with three doubles and 5 RBI on Friday against the Nationals.

The veteran third-baseman proved he still has some juice left in his bat with doubles in each of his first three plate appearances. Friday's performance raised his BABIP to a still-unlucky .230, so owners can expect Ramirez's .223 average to continue to trend upward.

Ramirez (elbow) is not viewed as a fit by the Mets, as they still hope to get David Wright (back) in the near term, Jon Heyman of CBS Sports reports.

The Mets had been rumored to be in potential talks to acquire Ramirez, despite his poor season, due to Wright's absence. Heyman also noted that the Mets prefer someone for third base now who could switch positions. That likely would mean someone like Ben Zobrist or Martin Prado, who has flexibility to move around the diamond.

Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's victory over the Pirates.

Ramirez failed to record a hit in the first five games he appeared in this month, but he has started to turn things around, going 4-for-11 over his last three games. Ramirez owns just a .647 OPS on the season, but he will continue to play regularly at third base in his final big league season.
