Ramirez injures ankle vs. Twins
Ramirez will have X-rays Thursday after the team returns to Chicago, although team trainers do not think it is more serious.
Ramirez slid into second base trying to break up a double play in the seventh inning, and ended up rolling in pain on the turf. He was helped off the field by two trainers and was on crutches after the game purely as a precaution.
Ramirez, who entered the game in a 2-for-24 slump, was 2 for 3.
