Third baseman Ramirez, reliever Loe return
LOS ANGELES -- While they worried about catcher Jonathan Lucroy's new injury, the Brewers did get a double dose of good news on Monday, when third baseman Aramis Ramirez and reliever Kameron Loe declared themselves fit for duty against the Dodgers.

Ramirez, who suffered a bruised elbow on a hit-by-pitch Friday in Arizona, took some swings Monday afternoon and told manager Ron Roenicke he was ready to rejoin the lineup. Ramirez admitted he was less than full strength.

"He felt like he could play, put it that way," Roenicke said.

Loe said his right elbow felt much better Monday and he was available to pitch. That was not the case on Sunday, when he felt tight warming up in the sixth inning against Arizona and the Brewers went to Jose Veras instead.

Loe's bout of tightness came after he threw 103 pitches while working three of four days from May 20-23.

"It's always hard for me to say no, and it killed me [Sunday], I hated it," Loe said. "But we've had a lot of work in the bullpen and we don't need anyone else getting hurt, that's for sure."
