Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez missed a few games earlier this month because of irritation around the A/C joint in his right shoulder. He was given a cortisone injection on June 11 and it seemed to take care of the issue, but MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick reports that Ramirez is out of the Los Angeles starting lineup on Tuesday night in Kansas City with the very same right shoulder discomfort.
Miguel Rojas will start in his place against Royals left-hander Danny Duffy. Hanley is being called day-to-day for now, but it may take a 15-day disabled list stint for him to finally get over this thing.
The 30-year-old Ramirez is batting .269/.354/.469 with 11 home runs and 46 RBI in 73 games this season for the Dodgers. He is currently scheduled to become a free agent five days after the 2014 World Series.
