5/22 Ramirez keeps scuffling
Aramis Ramirez was the DH Saturday night and went 0-for-5, striking out four times. It wasn’t pretty.
“He’s struggling,” Lou Piniella said. “We’ll see how he feels tomorrow. It’s been a struggle for him.”
Ramirez now is batting .160 and leads the Cubs with 40 strikeouts. He’s been battling a sore left thumb but told Piniella he was OK for Saturday’s game.
