Marlins' Ramirez out day after hit
NEW YORK -- Florida shortstop Hanley Ramirez was out of Tuesday night's lineup because of an injured right hand, and his status for later in the week was uncertain.
Marlins manager Fredi Gonzalez said Ramirez was "50-50" to play Wednesday afternoon against Johan Santana and the Mets. Florida plays Thursday night at Chicago.
Alfredo Amezaga started in place of Ramirez.
