PHILADELPHIA -- Dodgers manager Don Mattingly may have had an easier decision about his lineup on Sunday, but it didn't mean he had to like it.
Hanley Ramirez was again out of the lineup with a lower leg injury. While there is some concern it may be the shortstop's Achilles, Mattingly has only heard that it's a right calf injury that has cost the All-Star playing time.
"It didn't sound very good," Mattingly said. "I checked with him this morning and he gave me the 'not good.' I know the [medical staff is] checking him out and giving him some treatment. At this point, I don't have anything on what we are going to do next. I'm assuming -- I don't want to talk [for the training staff] -- that we may go with an MRI or something."
Ramirez is hitting .250 this year, with seven home runs and 24 RBIs.
