Hanley Ramirez Injury Update

                 Hanley Ramirez left Friday's game after he took a sinking line drive off the heel of his left hand. But X-rays were negative and, though the area beneath his thumb was swollen, it doesn't look like the injury is cause for alarm.

                 "Hopefully it'll feel better (Saturday)," Ramirez said.

                 Shane Victorino's line drive in the fourth inning caught Ramirez in the hand, just below the heel of his glove. Alfredo Amezaga took over for him at shortstop in the fifth inning.

               Ramirez said he was having trouble squeezing his thumb but that he intended to ice it down once he got back to his hotel room.

               Manager Fredi Gonzalez said it wouldn't surprise him if Ramirez was in the linup Saturday.
