Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez, who sustained a fractured rib after getting hit by a pitch earlier in the series, was able to play in Games 3 and 4 of the NLCS against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Bill Plunkett of The Orange County Register passed along comments from Dodgers manager Don Mattingly prior to Game 2 describing the severity of the injury:
Mattingly: Even though Hanley Ramirez is in lineup he's "iffy" and could be game time decision. HBP in ribs has him "little sore" today— Bill Plunkett (@billplunkettocr) October 12, 2013
Ramirez has been ruled out of Game 6 of the NLCS.
