Elbow strains can range from minor to really serious, but the Dodgers aren’t offering any more information at this time. Justin Turner will start at shortstop in Hanley’s place on Tuesday night against the Rockies.
Ramirez, an impending free agent, has battled thumb, shoulder, calf, lower back, hamstring, oblique, hand, and rib injuries all in the last two seasons. And now we can add a right elbow issue to the list.
