Aramis Ramirez: Sprained Left Knee Staff

Update: Ramirez left Friday's game against the Diamondbacks with a sprained left knee.

Recommendation: It's the same knee that Ramirez sprained earlier this spring, and while a timetable for return was not made immediately available, a stint on the disabled list seems likely for the 34-year-old. Alex Gonzalez replaced Ramirez at third base Friday, and though it was the first time in his career that he's played the hot corner, Gonzalez may be seeing frequent time there until Ramirez returns. That is, unless the team recalls a third baseman from Triple-A.
