Hanley Ramirez leaves game with hamstring injury, probably out a long time

Hanley Ramirez didn’t make his 2013 debut until Monday. He probably played his last game for a long time last night: he suffered a “serious” left hamstring injury while going first-to-third:

Manager Don Mattingly said Ramirez “got it pretty good,” comparing it to the hamstring injury suffered by Matt Kemp last year. That one sidelined Kemp for 51 games over two stints on the disabled list because he came back too soon and reinjured it after one game.

The injury came at AT&T Park, which is the same place Ramirez injured his thumb in the WBC. He left his health in San Francisco.

The biggest issue now is what the heck the Dodgers do with the infield they’ve been juggling all season. Dee Gordon would seem like a good choice, but the Dodgers had wanted to keep him in Triple-A and maybe learn second base.  Speaking of second base, Mark Ellis was on the bench last night for his sixth straight game with a quad injury, so the Dodgers are a mess up the middle.

Davey Lopes is the first base coach. I imagine he could still play. Just spit-ballin’ here.
