Hanley Ramirez injury: Dodgers SS expected out 4-6 weeks

Jason O. Watson

Ramirez, who has played four games this season, injured his left hamstring in the sixth inning Friday night against the Giants in San Francisco.

MRI results for Hanley Ramirez confirmed a strain of his left hamstring strain, and the Dodgers are placing the official timetable for his return at four to six weeks. That puts Ramirez back with the Dodgers some time in the first two weeks of June if all goes according to plan.

Ramirez injured his left hamstring while running to third base in the sixth inning on Friday night against the Giants in San Francisco. Ramirez pulled up just as he got to third base and was tagged out on the play. He clutched his hamstring and was immediately helped off the field by trainer Sue Falsone and bench coach Trey Hillman.

The Dodgers placed Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list on Saturday, just five days after he was activated from the DL for thumb surgery. Ramirez hit .455 (5-for-11) in just four games, with a home run and two doubles.

Before the game on Tuesday, manager Don Mattingly wouldn't commit to a timetable for Ramirez, saying only his shortstop was out "a while."
