Dodgers place Manny Ramirez on disabled list

Jul 3, 2010, 8:02 PM EDT

The Dodgers finally bit the bullet and placed outfielder Manny Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, according to Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times.

Manny has been sidelined by a strained right hamstring since late June and will rest for at least the next week to allow time for healing.  He’s batting .322 with a .412 on-base and .525 slugging percentage this season, but his power numbers have fallen considerably.  In 183 at-bats, he has only eight home runs.

Xavier Paul was recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque in a corresponding move and is expected to get a handful of starts while Ramirez is out.  Reed Johnson and Garret Anderson are also in line for more playing time.

The Dodgers, 43-36, are 3.5 games back of the Padres in the National League West.

    You can see by the amount of comments received that no one cares about Manny. Hopefully this is his last year . You can only hope .
