Hanley still sore
With his right hand still swollen, Hanley Ramirez as expected was not in the Marlins lineup on Tuesday night.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez called it “50/50″ that Ramirez would be back on Wednesday in the afternoon affair with the Mets. Realistically, that may be pushing it.
The good news is the All-Star shortstop is feeling a bit better. Ramirez was pegged on the side of his right hand on Monday night by a John Maine 94 mph fastball. There still is swelling, but Ramirez is able to move his hand pretty good.
“It still hurts,” Ramirez said. “It’s a little better. I want to make sure I’m 100 percent. When I feel I can go, I can go.”
