UPDATE: Manny Ramirez placed on disabled list

Apr 23, 2010, 3:52 PM EDT

UPDATE: Manny Ramirez has been placed on the disabled list, with Xavier Paul being called up from Triple-A to take his roster spot. Paul is 25 years old and deserving of a shot after putting up some nice numbers in the minors, so it’ll be interesting to see if Joe Torre actually plays him over Garret Anderson versus right-handers. Based on Torre’s history, I’m guessing probably not.

Manny Ramirez left last night’s game in the sixth inning after aggravating his calf injury and the Los Angeles Times reports that he’s undergoing a “precautionary” MRI exam today.
Ramirez is off to a great start, hitting .415 with two homers, four doubles, nine walks, and 12 RBIs in 13 games, and was actually running to first base after singling when he pulled up lame yesterday
Even if the MRI shows nothing serious Ramirez seems likely to miss at least a couple games, and the Dodgers figure to platoon Garret Anderson and Reed Johnson in left field for as long as he’s out.

    Maybe he shouldn’t run hard anymore…to prevent injuries. That’s probably what he’s been doing all along. He’s thinking on a different level than the rest of us.

    Should they MRI both thighs?

    They have to, how else could they be sure its the right leg? Hell, they might want to do his arms too, might not even be the right set of limbs hes complaining about.

    Maybe they should MRI his ovaries.

    Too bad we traded Juan Pierre away. He played incredibly well when Manny was serving his suspension. Reed Johnson is terrible.

    Injury is probably a result of taking to many steroids + the lates female drug in his attempt to get of steroids. He’s a liar and cheat and His record in professional baseball should contain asterisks clear back to his days with Boston where He lied then. Baseball should kick these liars out of the game, or allow any and all to use what ever enhancement drug they wish. Clear the slate for everyone and asterisk all those user prior to the date where everyone can become users. I mean, it’s personal thing and if these guys want to ruin their health, that’s their business, but LET EVERYONE OF THEM BE USERS, NOT JUST A FEW LIARS.

    At .217/.277/.217 in 67 PAs? Doubtful, UnJuanted.

    He’s probably due for a drug test , and needs a little more time to clean up . Scumbag , roid head . He and Ortiz , what a pair to draw to. Those two pigs eat out of the same trough .

    How about an mri on his heart , or lack of one . It shouldn’t be too long before this jerk-off is out of baseball , thank God .

    McCourt probably couldn’t afford Pierre. Crappy onwership, sell the team to Cuban. He’s got deep pockets and will pay guys the way steinbrenner does. Dodgers would be contenders every year. Not the pretenders they are now without a true ace. I bet halladay would’ve been in dodger blue. Too bad they can’t score very much without Manny in lineup. It’s depressing, he’s only one guy, seems like 4.
