Depending on the extent of the injury, there may. Be more fuel thrown on the "players shouldn't participate in the World Baseball Classic" argument. The Dodgers' starting third baseman, Hanley Ramirez has left tonight's WBC Championship after jamming his thumb.
The extent of the injury is not yet known, but Ramirez will be evaluated by doctors from both the Domnican team and the Dodgers. Ramirez was due to return to Dodgers' camp shortly after the tournament's conclusion.
Something to consider, and something to cause concern among Dodgers' fans, is that the Padres thought Chase Headley's jammed thumb was nothing major. It turned out to be a fracture, and he will miss the next 4-6 weeks. That may not be the case for Ramirez, but the possibility is there.
