Found May 04, 2013 on MLB Injury News:
In his third start since returning from thumb surgery, Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez suffered a “serious” left hamstring injury last night while running the bases, according to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com. The hamstring injury will result in another trip to the disabled list for Ramirez. Ramirez suffered the injury during the top of the sixth inning when he attempted to go from first to third on a single by A.J. Ellis. He was ultimately thrown out at third after he pulled up rounding second base. He exited the field grabbing at the back of his left knee. While Ramirez told reporters that he believes he’ll be fine, his comments sound more like someone that isn’t willing to face reality. "I'm going to come back tomorrow and see how it feels," said Ramirez. "I'm going to be fine. I'm going to get back on that field. Soon." After the game, manager Don Mattingly compared Ramirez’s hamstring injury to the one that sidelined Matt Kemp for more than 50 games last season. A roster move will be announced today, and Mattingly admitted that the team doesn’t have very many options when it comes to replacing Ramirez. The Dodgers could call up Dee Gordon, who’s gotten off to a good start in Triple-A. Justin Sellers filled in for Ramirez at shortstop throughout the start of the season, and he manned the position last night following his early exit.

The Los Angeles Dodgers and "Too Much Pitching"

Freak accidents happen. Just ask the Los Angeles Dodgers. (Credit) Sometimes a cliche is just that - a simple saying that has become so overused that it no longer has any meaning outside of being a one-liner. No cliche in baseball gets more use than “you can never have too much pitching.” It seems like the phrase is used during every game, whether the man on the mound is performing...
