Ramirez Expected Back on Monday

According to a report from the Tribune, Aramis Ramirez is expected to back in the Cubs lineup on Monday against the Atlanta Braves. Ramirez has been out since May 8 (placed on 15-day DL on May 9)and the Cubs are 20-24 with him on the DL.

Aramis Ramirez is scheduled to take batting practice with the team one more time in Pittsburgh on Wednesday then join the Peoria Chiefs for three games over the weekend against the Kane County Cougars.

The Cubs are looking to get Ramirez between 15-20 at bats before putting him back in the lineup.

Ramirez cautioned that he is “not a savior” that all 25 guys have to do their job.

From the Tribune: “It doesn’t work that way. Everybody has got to do their job. They can think whatever they want, but we have 25 guys here and everybody has got to do their job. It’s not like I’m going to jump in and all of a sudden we’re going to win every game.”

Angel Guzman put together a solid outing for the Peoria Chiefs on Tuesday night.

With Aramis Ramirez due back as well as Reed Johnson (placed on DL June 25 retroactive to June 21) and Angel Guzman (placed on DL June 21), changes to the Cubs roster are on the horizon.
