6/17 Ramirez to Peoria Saturday, Sunday
Aramis Ramirez, on the disabled list with a sprained left thumb, will make rehab starts Saturday and Sunday at Class A Peoria. The Cubs third baseman has tested his thumb and a new grip in batting practice the last three days at Wrigley Field. He has been sidelined since June 8. Ramirez was batting .168 with five homers and 22 RBIs in 47 games.
