Hanley Ramirez injury: Dodgers SS jams thumb in World Baseball Classic, to have MRI

Ramirez is expected back in Dodgers camp at Camelback Ranch on Wednesday to have further tests on his thumb.

The Dominican Republic won the World Baseball Classic Tuesday night with a 3-0 win over Puerto Rico in the final at AT&T Park in San Francisco, but the celebration was a bit muted for Hanley Ramirez, who jammed his right thumb during the game.

"Hanley, he jammed his thumb when he dove for that ball," Dominican Republic general manager Moises Alou told reporters after the game, per Barry Bloom of MLB.com. "It was pretty swollen. He's going to have an MRI on it [Wednesday] in Arizona."

Ramirez is expected back at Camelback Ranch on Wednesday, where he will be examined by the Dodgers' staff.

The injury happened in the third inning Tuesday when Ramirez, playing third base, dove for a ground ball off the bat of Jesus Feliciano. The ball went through for a single, and Ramirez came up shaking his right thumb.

Ramirez actually stayed in the game and singled in his next at-bat, but after the fifth inning he was removed from the game. "I don't think it's bad," Dominican coach Alfredo Griffin told Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times.
