3/22 Aramis Ramirez update
Third baseman Aramis Ramirez, bothered by a fever, was back in camp Tuesday and took batting practice. He may play Wednesday, manager Mike Quade said. Ramirez has not played since Friday. He was sent home Saturday with a 102-degree fever.
“I was somewhat impressed,” Quade said of Ramirez’s appearance on Tuesday. “I know he’s not feeling good and he looked me in the eye and said, ‘I want to play tomorrow.’ I’ve liked his swing all spring and with a veteran guy I’m not as concerned.”
