Hanley Ramirez hit a bubble-inducing homer last night, but then the night got worse for him: he left the game in the seventh inning with a bruised right finger after taking a sharp grounder off his hand. The Dodgers said X-rays were negative and that Ramirez’s status was day to day.
This is not the first time Ramirez has had issues with that hand. He tore a tendon in the thumb of the same hand diving for a ball in the World Baseball Classic in 2013.
After the game, Don Mattingly said that Ramirez would likely miss “a couple of games,” but you never know with “day-to-day.”
