Hanley Ramirez good to go?

New, 11 comments

Hanley Ramirez may return to the lineup today.

After going four games without Hanley Ramirez in the lineup, the Marlins look like they will be getting him back full-time beginning Saturday -- pain included.

Ramirez, who couldn't take more than 10 swings off a tee Thursday because of the pain in his right wrist, got two at-bats in Friday's 8-6 loss to the Cubs after entering the game in the seventh.

''It pinches each time I swing, but I've got to go with it,'' said Ramirez...

``I feel it every time I grab the bat. But I can swing. The swelling is a little bit better. But I've got to take it. I want to be out there.''

''He's good to go,'' Gonzalez said. ``He had two good at-bats, and he'll be good to go tomorrow.''

It would be good to have Hanley back in the lineup, but I hope they are not rushing him.  However, it sounds like they are.
