7/5 Ramirez & Johnson update
Aramis Ramirez went 1-for-2 and drove in the only run of the game in the Peoria Chiefs’ 4-1 loss Saturday night. Nearly 6,600 fans watched the game in Peoria. Reed Johnson’s only appearance was as a pinch-hitter, and he drew a walk. Because of wet grounds, Johnson was scratched from the starting lineup. Ramirez is rehabbing his left shoulder and Johnson is rehabbing from low back spasms. Both will play Sunday for the Class A team, and are expected to be activated on Monday.
