The Brewers travel to Minneapolis for their first of two games at Target Field Wednesday.  The game starts at 7:10 p.m.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The Milwaukee Brewers activated third baseman Aramis Ramirez from the disabled list Wednesday.

Ramirez was in the lineup as the designated hitter at Minnesota for an interleague game against the Twins, more than three weeks after he strained his left hamstring while fielding a ground ball. He was batting fifth.

Utilityman Elian Herrera was optioned to Triple-A Nashville to make room on the roster.

Ramirez, who turns 36 later this month, started the season strong and had 19 RBIs in April. But he was in an 8-for-62 slump when he was injured. Mark Reynolds has taken most of the time at third base in Ramirez's absence, and the Brewers haven't missed a beat. They've been in first place in the NL Central every day since April 5.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- The Brewers have activated Aramis Ramirez from the disabled list after the third baseman was sidelined more than three weeks with a strained left hamstring.

Ramirez returned to the team Tuesday after a two-day rehab stint in the minors. Milwaukee plans to bring Ramirez back for Wednesday night's game at Minnesota, where the right-handed slugger can serve a designated hitter in an American League park.

Ramirez was hitting .252 with five homers and 21 RBIs when he got hurt May 11 during a 6-5 win over the Yankees. He went on the disabled list two days later.

The rest of the lineup has picked up the slack since Ramirez was sidelined, so much so that he may not return initially to his customary cleanup position in the order.
