When the Los Angeles Dodgers geared up for the second of a three-game set against the Colorado Rockies, they were expecting to have their full lineup ready to go. Up until an hour before the game, that’s the way it seemed until manager Don Mattingly reported some injury news.

Hanley Ramirez, who was on the lineup card, was a late scratch due to a right elbow strain. Ramirez has been plagued with injuries throughout his tenure in Los Angeles and was just starting to look healthy.

The 30 year old had 13 hits in his last seven games and was 2-for-4 with an RBI double in Monday’s win. Reports indicated the nine-year veteran has been icing his elbow since at least the series against the San Francisco Giants.

On many occasions, Ramirez has stated that even though this is the final year of his contract, he has not given free agency much thinking. In 119 games, the shortstop is batting .278 with 13 home runs and 69 RBIs.
