7/4 Lineup & Ramirez update
Aramis Ramirez was not in the lineup for the second day and apparently his left thumb injury has flared up again.
“The trainer came to me [Saturday] and said [Ramirez] had a little swelling in the meat portion of his hand and he suggested we give him a little breather and that’s what we’re doing,” Lou Piniella said.
How long will Ramirez be sidelined?
“Whenever he’s ready to go, we’ll get him back in there,” Piniella said.
Here’s Sunday’s lineup:
