Manny Ramirez Likely Out All Weekend

Manager Joe Torre told reporters before today’s game that Manny Ramirez, nursing an inflamed right hamstring, is unavailable for tonight’s game with the Diamondbacks, not even as a pinch hitter. Torre said the club still hasn’t decided whether or not to place Ramirez on the disabled list.

“We have to find out to what degree will [Ramirez’s hamstring] get better, and what does that get us,” Torre said, “we don’t have him as a pinch hitter today, and probably the weekend. Is he going to be a player by Tuesday, or is he going to be a pinch hitter by Monday or Tuesday? We have to decide if that’s worth playing a man short.”
