Hanley Ramirez returns to Dodgers’ lineup after missing four straight games with sore calf

3 Comments

When the Dodgers’ initial lineup was released for Tuesday night’s game against the visiting Reds, it had Erisbel Arruebarrena at shortstop instead of Hanley Ramirez. But this just happened:

Ramirez wound up missing four games with what was being referred to as left calf soreness — it also got labeled an Achilles issue at one point. Also of note: Matt Kemp is sitting Tuesday for a fifth consecutive game and will not be a late addition. He’s not necessarily injured but has looked sluggish on offense and defense in his return from October ankle surgery. Andre Ethier is the Dodgers’ starting center fielder.
