4/25 Ramirez gets day off
Mike Quade has tried to give everyone a day off and Monday was Aramis Ramirez day of rest.
“Ramy needs a day — I think he needs a day,” Quade said. “I could’ve given it to him [Sunday]. I thought [Sunday] was a more offensive conducive day. It’s a good thing when you have a guy playing so well like [Jeff Baker] is, it makes it a lot easier.”
Plus, Quade wants Ramirez to be fresh for the upcoming West Coast trip to Arizona and Los Angeles. Baker has never faced Rockies starter Esmil Rogers. In fact, only Blake DeWitt (0-for-3) and Reed Johnson (0-for-3) have.
