third baseman Aramis Ramirez has left the game in the bottom of the third inning with what looked to be a separated shoulder. Ramirez extended his body to make a diving play and came up in excruciating pain holding the bicep/shoulder area. He was on the ground for over a minute before being helped up. The team trainer was holding the injured arm as they walked off the field.
More on this as it comes out.
If Ramirez goes on the DL for an extended amount of time, the Cubs would likely platoon Scales and Miles as second while platooning newly acquired utility man Ryan Freel and Mike Fontenot at third base. Not the best combination, especially with Soto and Bradley not hitting the ball well.
