Manny Ramirez, who hit .366/.441/.598 in June, received a dose of good news today, in that he was not placed on the disabled list, at least not yet. Per the Dodgers:
Manny was improved today. MRI showed some inflammation and we'll see how he progresses tomorrow before determining the next step.
If Ramirez is placed on the disabled list, his likely replacement would be Xavier Paul, who has had two stints with the Dodgers this season, and is currently in Triple A. Paul was not in tonight's lineup in Albuquerque. However, a stint on the disabled list for Ramirez might not happen. Dylan Hernandez of the Los Angeles Times reported via Twitter:
Source tells me that Manny is "unlikely" to go on the disabled list.
In other news, reliever Cory Wade, who was on the disabled list since undergoing shoulder surgery in March, was outrighted to Triple A Albuquerque today, per Hernandez. He was pitching on a rehab assignment with Class A Inland Empire. This procedure removes Wade from the 40-man roster.
