Marlins' Ramirez back vs. Mets
Ramirez left Tuesday night's 5-3 loss at Philadelphia in the third inning. He felt tightness in his right groin after beating out a grounder to shortstop for a single.
The shortstop took part in pregame drills Friday night, but did not start in the Marlins' 2-1, 11-inning loss to New York. He pinch hit in the 10th and grounded out. He is hitting .318 with eight homers and 22 RBIs.
