Calf strain sends Manny to the DL

WASHINGTON – Los Angeles Dodgers slugger Manny Ramirez has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right calf.

Ramirez was injured running out a single during Thursday’s game at Cincinnati and was removed for a pinch runner.

It’s the same problem that caused the 37-year-old Ramirez to miss two starts last weekend.

The 12-time All-Star is hitting .415 with two homers and 12 RBIs. He reached 1,800 RBIs on Wednesday, after recording his 2,500th career hit on April 10 at Florida.

Ramirez is tied with Hall of Famer Mike Schmidt for 14th on the career list with 548 home runs.

To replace Ramirez on the 25-man roster, the Dodgers recalled outfielder Xavier Paul from Triple-A Albuquerque before Friday’s game at the Nationals.
