This isn’t good. Or it might be fine. You know, one of those.
Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez was lifted from Sunday’s game against the Braves due to lightheadedness.
Hanley hit a single to open the third inning then slid hard into second base on a Dan Uggla infield single that followed. He motioned for the training staff soon after and appeared to be holding his chest while walking off the field.
Will Carroll of Baseball Prospectus suspects that Ramirez might have been pulled due to an irregular heartbeat, but that hasn’t been confirmed. Donny Murphy replaced him at shortstop.
Frisaro says the temperature at Atlanta’s Turner Field today is 82 degrees, so it’s not like dehydration or heat exhaustion would have been an issue.
