As MLB.com’s Joe Frisaro reports, Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez was lifted from Saturday’s game against the Rays with tightness in his right hamstring and is “50-50″ to play on Sunday.
Brian Barden replaced him in the ninth inning and failed to register a hit in a game that carried into the 11th inning and saw the Rays escape with a wild 9-8 victory. Hanley was 2-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored before departing. He will be a game-time decision Sunday after the Marlins’ medical staff runs some tests.
“He iced it down,” manager Fredi Gonzalez said in his post-game presser. “We’ll re-evaluate it

Ramirez has batted .286 with a .370 on-base percentage, .492 slugging percentage, 11 home runs and 40 RBI in 252 at-bats this season. He has also swiped 12 bases.
