Dodgers' Ramirez Injures Hamstring

By  | 

Manny Ramirez has aggravated his sore left hamstring while playing the outfield for the first time this spring.

The Los Angeles Dodgers slugger was hurt during Sunday's game
against Colorado while chasing a ball in the fourth inning. He
finished the half-inning but was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the
bottom half.

Ramirez said he didn't know if the injury was severe enough that
it would have kept him out of a regular-season game.

Ramirez sat out games Thursday and Saturday for precautionary
reasons after first feeling tightness in the hamstring. He said he
felt pain Sunday when he chased Troy Tulowitzki's double into the
left-field corner.
