Dodger duo to avoid DL
Posted on: July 17, 2010 5:05 pm
There are no plans to place Manny Ramirez on the disabled list, Dodgers manager Joe Torre told reporters, including the Los Angeles Times ' Steve Dilbeck before Saturday's game against the Cardinals.
Ramirez, in fact, was eligible to pinch hit against St. Louis and should return to the field next week. Ramirez has been on the disabled list twice this season with right leg injuries. He left Friday's game in the first inning with a right calf tightness.
"I think we have to keep an eye on Manny for the rest of the year," Torre said.
The Dodgers will also be without catcher Russell Martin, who is dealing with an injured thumb. Martin was not in Saturday's lineup and won't play Sunday, either.
