Ramirez's average is down to .328 on the year. He'd gone 5 for 9 in his previous two games with two homers and six RBI.
The Milwaukee starter gave up three runs on eight hits and a walk over six decent innings in defeat, his ERA at 4.50. He struck out seven batters over his 105 pitches but allowed solo homers to Andre Ethier and Matt Kemp.
Gallardo has been fairly consistent of late for Milwaukee but that hasn't translated into a win since he moved to 3-1 on April 29 against Pittsburgh. Gallardo will look to get back on track when he next takes the hill Sunday against the Pirates.
Hart, on the DL for the first seven weeks of the season with a knee injury, may now when his comeback date is in the near future.
"I'll know a lot this week," Hart said about his comeback date. Manager Ron Roenicke said May 30 is not out of the question, but the first week in June is probably more realistic.
Ramirez needed a day off Sunday to rest his knee, but will return to the lineup after a day off. He's hitting .352/.407/.611 in 54 at-bats this year. Ramirez will hit fourth against Dodgers starter Clayton Kershaw.
Knowing that Weeks ended the season with a .230 average isn't the most comforting stat for his owners (although he did hit 20 home runs for the third-consecutive season). But if you traded for Weeks May 22 last year, you got a second baseman who hit .255 with 17 home runs, 14 steals and 24 doubles over his final 440 at-bats. And this is where Weeks' value lies -- trading for him gets you just the good stats on your roster, and none of the bad.
Granted, one has to believe that Weeks will turn it around this year like he did in 2012. But for his career, Weeks is a slightly better player in the seocnd half, and last year's turnaround showed that he could pull himself out of a prolonged slump. It's far from a sure thing, but Weeks can be had for pennies on the dollar, and may be worth the gamble.
