Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is still "feeling it" in his hand.
Mattingly said Ramirez hasn't swung a bat since being hit in the hand by a pitch by Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal on Sunday. He has picked a bat up and "moved it around," according to Mattingly, for whatever that's worth. He's been called day-to-day since sustaining the injury, but Ramirez hasn't been in the lineup since Sunday and the Dodgers will have to think about a DL trip if he doesn't show great improvement soon.
