The Cubs will receive a sandwich pick in the 2012 draft after offering salary arbitration to Aramis Ramirez. The Brewers are seemingly preparing for the departure of Prince Fielder and were working on this deal before the news about Ryan Braun broke over the weekend.
With the additions of Aramis Ramirez and Alex Gonzalez (signed one-year deal with an option for 2013), the Brewers will have a new left side of the infield next season.
The Aramis Ramirez Era in Chicago is officially over.
Rumors have also suggested that Carlos Pena could be an option for the Brewers at first base for next season.
