Manny's Hammy Keeps Him Out of Spring Training

Manny Ramirez's hamstring injury will keep him out of spring training games for at least a week.

The Los Angeles Dodgers slugger aggravated his sore left hamstring Sunday while playing the outfield for the first time this spring. Manager Joe Torre said Monday that Ramirez will be held out of the lineup through the weekend -- and probably longer than that.

Ramirez first had trouble with his hamstring last week, when he was scratched from the lineup Thursday in what was supposed to be his exhibition debut. He played Friday as the designated hitter, sat out Saturday and started in left field Sunday against Colorado.

Ramirez felt his hamstring grab while chasing Troy Tulowitzki's fourth-inning double into the left-field corner and was removed when the Dodgers came to bat.
