RamirezThe Marlins will wait until Friday to make a decision on whether Hanley Ramirez should be placed on the DL, the Palm Beach Post reports.

Ramirez, who has never hit the DL in his short career thus far, is dealing with major back pain that is severely impacting his day-to-day life. He has not played since leaving Sunday's game with the pain, which he says has been bothering him for a month.

The Marlins can no longer wait to decide on Ramirez, however. The Marlins have an off day Thursday and then starts an 11-game homestand. “We can’t keep going with only one shortstop,” manager Edwin Rodriguez said. “Pretty soon we have to make a decision.”

Surprisingly, Ramirez hasn't seen a doctor for the issue that also has tingling in his left leg. Fortunately, Ramirez reported improvement on Wednesday, Rodriguez relayed, but he's unable to play entirely, never mind pinch-hitting. While the Marlins are hoping the off day will help matters, Ramirez could have a problem with the plane flight from Arizona to Miami.

“That long flight home is going to be painful,” Rodriguez said.
