Ramirez is not in the lineup against the Angels on Thursday. Ramirez will head to the bench following two straight starts, which came on the heels of a minor hamstring injury that forced the 25-year-old to miss a pair of games. The infielder is likely going to receive a few games off here and there leading up to the playoffs over the next couple weeks. In his place, Erik Gonzalez will man the keystone while batting ninth for the series finale.
Ramirez (hamstring) is in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Angels. Ramirez sat out the Indians' last two games to give his sore hamstring a rest, but he will be back in action Tuesday following a team off day. As he has done regularly of late when in the lineup, Ramirez will man the keystone and hit third in the Indians' batting order. He will look to pick up where he left off, having tallied eight hits over the last four games he started.
Ramirez will spend a few days on the bench to rest his hamstring, Tom Withers of The Associated Press reports. With Ramirez out of the lineup Saturday and the team having a scheduled off day Monday, it appears likely that the infielder will be back in action for Tuesday's series opener against the Angels. Ramirez has been a little beat up over the past couple weeks with a bruised forearm and this slight hamstring problem, so the Indians want to make sure he's right heading into the home stretch of the season.
Ramirez is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals. Following the end of Cleveland's 22-game winning streak, Ramirez will receive a day off in favor of Giovanny Urshela. Over his past 10 games, Ramirez is hitting a scorching-hot .459/.512/1.189 while adding seven home runs and 12 RBI.
Ramirez went 4-for-4 with a walk and scored the game-winning run in Thursday's 3-2, walkoff victory over the Royals. Ramirez pounded out two more doubles Thursday to extending his MLB-leading total to 50. He now ranks fourth in the AL in batting average (.314) and runs (97), while maintaining the league's third-best OPS (.941).
