Last call

• Right-hander Wily Peralta said he was not experiencing any back discomfort on Sunday, a day after he was briefly visited by Roenicke and head athletic trainer Dan Wright during a start against the Cubs. That scare came in the second inning, and Peralta was able to remain in the game into the sixth.

Aramis Ramirez went 0-for-2 on Sunday, the first day of his rehab assignment with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. He popped out to second base in his first at-bat and struck out in his second. He played four innings at third base and recorded one defensive putout but did not return in the fifth inning after the game was delayed by rain.

Ramirez was scheduled to continue his rehab assignment on Monday, weather permitting. After Sunday's 9-0 victory over the Cubs, Roenicke suggested that Ramirez would join the Brewers on Wednesday in Minnesota.

"We'll see what's happening with rain up there, but hopefully he can play tomorrow, get back here, take a day and maybe Wednesday," Roenicke said. "I've talked to [GM] Doug [Melvin] about it, and that's what we're planning, but those things change. Maybe the weather changes that a little bit."
