MILWAUKEE (AP) - The Chicago Cubs have placed third baseman
Aramis Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list with a dislocated left
shoulder.

Ramirez was hurt on a backhand dive in the third inning of Friday night's 3-2 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. He had an MRI on Saturday that showed significant swelling but won't need surgery.

Manager Lou Piniella said Ramirez will spend one week in a sling and about three weeks rebuilding strength in the shoulder with non-baseball activities before a timetable can be set for his return.

Ramirez partially dislocated the same shoulder on Aug. 28, 2000, when he played for Pittsburgh and missed the remainder of the season.

Ramirez is hitting .364 with four homers and 16 RBIs in 18 games this season.
