Ramirez Could Miss Time

Aramis Ramirez will have a MRI on his left knee in Chicago on Thursday and he may be sidelined for an indefinite period of time according to a report in the Chicago Tribune on Wednesday night. Ramirez aggravated the injury on Wednesday attempting to beat out a throw from J.J. Hardy in the 2nd inning.

Ramirez said the knee “has been sore for two, three weeks” and he first injured it on May 12th in Philadelphia.

The Cubs are hoping Ramirez will only miss a “few of days” and they were planning on giving “Ramirez some time off this week to recover” but were trying to win the series against the Brewers. Ramirez is expected to rejoin his teammates in Atlanta on Friday.
