Aramis Ramirez traded to Pittsburgh Pirates

In a move not surprising to many, the Milwaukee Brewers have entered sale mode in the week leading up to the MLB trade deadline, trading third baseman Aramis Ramirez and cash to the Pittsburgh Pirates for minor league RHP Yhonathan Barrios.
Ramirez had been batting just .247 this season for Milwaukee, but had picked it up of late, hitting .340 in his last 15 games. He returns to a Pirates organization that he started his career with, breaking into the big leagues in 1998 at the age of 19 and playing parts of six seasons in Pittsburgh. Ramirez announced before the beginning of this season that he would retire from baseball at the end of 2015. There has been no indication his intentions have changed.
The 23-year-old Barrios has 11 saves in 13 opportunities for Triple-A Indianapolis this season. He has allowed 36 hits in 40 1/3 innings, but has only 21 strikeouts. His career record is 5-11. The Brewers have not announced which affiliate he will be assigned to.
