Hanley Ramirez to sit out day games after night games

6 Comments

Fresh off the disabled list, Hanley Ramirez is out of the Marlins’ lineup this afternoon and Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that he’ll be sitting out day games following night games for at least the next two weeks.

“That’s the doctor’s recommendation, so we have to follow it,” manager Edwin Rodriguez told Frisaro. “For two weeks, we will have to deal with that.”

Florida is playing a double-header today, so Ramirez is expected to be in the lineup for Game 2 tonight, but Frisaro reports that he’ll then likely sit out tomorrow’s day game.
