Hanley Ramirez Leaves Game with Hand Injury
(SAN FRANCISCO) -- Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez left Wednesday night's game against the Giants after getting hit in the left hand by a Ryan Vogelsong pitch in the seventh inning.
Following the pitch, Ramirez was escorted down to the dugout and X-rays came back negative of any fracture.
"You guys know me. If it's good tomorrow, I'll be in there," Ramirez said. "That's it. It's good news that it's not broken. Now, you just have to see how it feels tomorrow morning. I'm going to get here early, try to hit and see if I can go."
"It got me good," Ramirez continued, referencing the pitch. "It's sore a little bit. I iced it twice already and I'll go back to the hotel and try to ice it twice before I go to bed so I can be in there (Thursday)."
Dee Gordon, who has been playing well at second base, may have to move over to shortstop if Ramirez is unable to go.
"I talked to him (Ramirez). I'm sure he's relieved," manager Don Mattingly said. "You see when you get hit there, you're a little worried. The X-rays coming back is good for us and we'll see where he's at tomorrow, the next day or whatever. I'm sure he's going to be a little sore."
Ramirez has played all 14 games this season at shortstop.
