The golden age of Mannywood certainly seems to be over, as Manny Ramirez is hurt again.
A day after coming off the disabled list following a sore right hamstring, Ramirez left Friday's game in St. Louis with tightness in his right calf. Ramirez went on the DL in April because of a right calf strain.
According to the Los Angeles Times ' Steve Dilbeck , the Dodgers are saying Ramirez is being considered day-to-day, but speculates the team may not be able to count on Ramirez the rest of the season.
He started Friday’s game in St. Louis and drew a first-inning walk. He never advanced past first, though he did run hard to second when Casey Blake popped up for the final out.
When the Dodgers took the field in the bottom of the first, Xavier Paul was in Ramirez’s position in left field.
Ramirez is in the last year of his contract, and at his age, it is understood he will sign next season with an American League team as a designated hitter. Ramirez has still be productive with the Dodgers, hitting .317/.408/.516 with eight home runs and 39 RBI, but has been limited to 186 at-bats.
