Found May 08, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez recently suffered a hamstring injury which the team termed "serious." This label has been proven accurate, as the Dodgers have now placed an official timetable for Ramirez's return at four to six weeks, according to Eric Stephen of True Blue LA. The results of a recent MRI confirmed that Ramirez has sustained a strained left hamstring. He suffered the injury when he was attempting to go from first to third in the sixth inning of Friday's contest against the San Francisco Giants. After grabbing at the back of his leg, Ramirez was immediately removed from the game. The news of Ramirez's extended absence comes just over a week after he was activated from the disabled list to make his season debut for the Dodgers. Ramirez missed the beginning of the season after he suffered a thumb injury during the World Baseball Classic. Prior to hitting the DL on Saturday, Ramirez was off to a nice start for the Dodgers. The slugger had gone 5-for-11 with two doubles and a home run over four games. In his absence, Los Angeles is expected to use Dee Gordon at shortstop.

Since I can barely keep up — meaning not in the least bit — with the current trendsetters in American pop music, I must admit that I have never heard of Tiffany Hwang, nor am I familiar with her nine-member, all-girl super-group, Girls’ Generation. While Girls’ Generation initially made its mark on the global pop charts from its home base of South Korea, Hwang was born and...
