Hanley Ramirez returned to the Dodgers’ starting lineup on Saturday night after missing four straight games due to irritation around the A/C joint in his right shoulder, but he tweaked his left calf in the second inning and is on the bench for Sunday’s series finale against the visiting Cardinals.
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly told Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register that Hanley is listed as day-to-day for now, but the Los Angeles skipper suggested that a 15-day disabled list stint will become a consideration if the problem lingers. A bit of extended rest could be beneficial for Ramirez, who also battled a calf injury in May and shoulder problems in early June.
Miguel Rojas is starting at shortstop for the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon versus St. Louis.
Ramirez is batting .272/.358/.471 with 11 homers, 10 stolen bases, and 46 RBI in 74 games this year.
