Dodgers Injury Update: Hanley Ramirez hits DL

By on 8/10/2014 11:30:00 AM

UPDATED 11:35 ET: Ramirez has been  placed on the DL as expected, with Darwin Barney being activated to take his place. MLB Roster Moves tweeted the official move.

Original article:

The Los Angeles Dodgers fell to the Milwaukee Brewers last night by the score of 4-1. The Dodgers, who are 12th in the Major Leagues in runs scored, managed just four hits. The loss dropped the Dodgers to 66-52, three and a half games ahead of the San Francisco Giants in the National League West. There is concern on the injury front, as Hanley Ramirez appears destined to the disabled list with an oblique injury he suffered on Friday night.

Our own Darius Austin reported yesterday that Ramirez left another game early on Friday night when he left after the top of the first with tightness in his right side.

Bill Plunkett, who covers the Dodgers for the Orange Country Register, tweeted the following update on Ramirez.
As reported by Ken Gurnick of, it appeared likely that Ramirez would head to the disabled list due to his oblique injury, pending the results of the MRI. Manager Don Mattingly said that the injury that forced Ramirez from Friday's game, "doesn't sound good."

Miguel Rojas replaced Ramirez on Friday and stared Saturday's game, but Darwin Barney seems to be the most likely replacement for Ramirez. Barney was removed from Saturday's Tripel-A game in the third inning and likely will be recalled.

Ramirez is batting .277 with 12 home runs and 58 RBI in 100 games this season. He's played in 100 or more games only twice over the past four injury-plagued seasons. The veteran has played for the Red Sox, Marlins and Dodgers and has a career batting average of .300 with 191 home runs, 641 RBI and 259 stolen bases.
