Ramirez left Tuesday's game with a right toe bruise, the Boston Herald's Jason Mastrodonato reports.
He was hit on the big toe on his right foot by a pitch and replaced by Travis Shaw. X-rays were negative, so Ramirez should be considered day-to-day for now.
Ramirez left Tuesday's game against the Rockies after getting hit on the toe by a pitch, MLB.com's Ian Browne reports.
Travis Shaw replaced him as a pinch runner, but not before Ramirez put weight on his toe and went to first base. Shaw is a little nicked up too, but he's dealing with a hand injury, and must have made for a better option on the bases. Consider Ramirez day-to-day until the team makes an official announcement about his status.
Sardinas will likely be recalled from Triple-A Tacoma, possibly as soon as Wednesday, the Tacoma News Tribune reports.
Chris Taylor committed two errors Monday, resulting in four unearned runs against Seattle, and Sardinas was absent from Tacoma's lineup Tuesday. Sardinas has now reached 10 days in the minors, going 13-for-32 in his eight games with the Rainiers, and is allowed return without Seattle without the team needing to place another player on the DL. Ketel Marte (thumb) is not expected to be ready to return when first eligible.
Banuelos (elbow) could move up to Triple-A Gwinnett for his next rehab start, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.
Renewed elbow soreness forced Banuelos -- a Tommy John survivor -- to the DL to start the year, but he returned to action with Low-A Rome on Sunday, tossing two innings against Augusta. Banuelos did not fare well, giving up five runs (three earned) on five hits and two walks, but the team may bump him up the ladder for his next outing regardless. He could see a few starts for Atlanta down the road, but his history of elbow troubles figures to scare off most.
Darvish (elbow) will be capped at around 85-90 pitches in Saturday's start against the Pirates, MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports.
This will be Darvish's first big league start since undergoing Tommy John surgery on March 17, 2015, and he built up to 87 pitches in his last rehab outing. If all goes well, Darvish will get 22-23 starts through the end of the season and probably won't surpass 150 innings. The team has naturally been careful not to make public any internal pitch/innings restrictions for Darvish over the rest of the season, but he is returning late enough in the season that they may not need to take any drastic measures to protect him.
