Hanley's Hand May Land Him On Disabled List

Hanley Ramirez is back in Boston today for further tests on his injured left hand. He was hit by a line drive last Wednesday, and has not played since. Initial tests indicated (CATScan, X-Rays) that the hand was not broken, but further discomfort indicated the need for more testing—specifically an MRI. The team needs to make a decision soon, so the left-fielder may wind up on the 15-day DL to free up the roster spot for a healthier player. Said manager John Farrell, "He’s still feeling some discomfort in the hand where he got hit. Unfortunately, he’s not progressing as we anticipated, particularly over the last 24 to 48 hours." Stay tuned.
