"We were going to do some here, but it's too cold, and we didn't want to take a chance with the cold weather," Ramirez said. "Atlanta's going to be nice and hot and we're going to do some baseball stuff there."
Brewers manager Ron Roenicke noted that Ramirez played catch before Sunday's game and was able to extend his leg while walking in a normal fashion without feeling any discomfort, a positive sign. The Brewers have no intention to rush their All-Star third baseman back, however.
"You do because you can't do it again," Roenicke said of taking a cautious approach with hamstring injuries. "If you do it again the next time, it's a month or more, so you really have to be careful."
