Ramirez is not in the lineup for game one of Wednesday's doubleheader against St. Louis.

EDGE Analysis

With two games in a day, getting rest in the afternoon doesn't mean Ramirez won't play at night. For the day game, Alexi Amarista will take over at shortstop and hit eighth.

Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a double and RBI in Thursday's 6-0 victory over the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Thursday's outing doubled Ramirez's hit total for the Month of June, bringing him to 4-for-27 across seven games. His recent struggles have brought his batting average and on-base percentage down to .240 and .272, respectively. Apart from occasional (and short) bursts where he'll post a multi-hit game or two, Ramirez is unlikely to become a regular contributor to the Padres' mediocre offense.

Ramirez went 3-for-5 with two homers, five RBI and three runs against the Mariners on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Apparently San Diego isn't such a bad place to hit after all, as nearly all the Padres had the offensive fever in this one. Ramirez has been on a little surge over the last seven games, hitting .367 (11-for-30) with all three of his 2016 homers and eight RBI in that span, but the 34-year-old shortstop is unlikely to start reliving his glory days anytime soon. He's best left for NL-only formats.

Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a home run and a strikeout Sunday against Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran shortstop is not known for his power, but he can go yard from time to time as evidenced by today's fifth-inning blast to center field. The homer might be what he needs to get out of his slump, as he's gone 6-for-35 (.171) over the past 11 games.

Ramirez will start and bat seventh for Monday's game against San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez did not start Sunday's game against Los Angeles but is back in the lineup, starting at shortstop Monday against San Francisco. The 34-year-old is currently in the midst of a May-slump as he's batting 12-for-67 (.179) this month with an unsightly .211 OBP. Maybe Sunday's game off will help Ramirez begin to right the ship as he faces off against Drew Pomeranz for the Giants.

Ramirez will not start Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

EDGE Analysis

Considering Ramirez owns just a .234/.264/.286 batting line this season, Ramirez's absence shouldn't have a large overall reach in the fantasy realm but, regardless, will take a seat in favor of Alexi Amarista on Sunday. Ramirez will likely rejoin the lineup when the Padres travel to San Francisco on Monday despite how poorly he's played of late.

Ramirez is in the lineup and batting fifth in Game 2 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez exited Tuesday's game with cramping in his hamstring but it does not appear to be serious as he is back in the lineup for the final game of the Cubs-Padres series. The 34-year-old shortstop is hoping to break out of a minor 10-game slump where he's batted 8-for-35 with only four RBI and one run.

Ramirez (hamstring) is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs, Mark Sweeney of Fox Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez was lifted from Tuesday night's game due to cramping in his hamstring, but he told the media that he did not expect to miss any time. Regardless, the Padres will hold Ramirez out of Game 1, likely as a precaution, with the possibility that he could be available for the nightcap. Adam Rosales will get the nod at shortstop for the early game, and he'll bat eighth against Chicago's Kyle Hendricks.

Ramirez (hamstring cramping) said after Tuesday's game that he will be ready to go for Wednesday's game against the Cubs, the Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports.

EDGE Analysis

It is still worth double-checking Ramirez's status when Wednesday's lineups are released, but it sounds like the Padres have dodged a bullet with this one, as they are running dangerously low on infield options. Ramirez will offer double-digit steals over a full season, but that will be the only category where he offers meaningful contributions, so he is best saved for deeper leagues.

Ramirez left Tuesday's game with cramping in his left hamstring, the Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports.

EDGE Analysis

The team has not yet issued a statement regarding a timetable for his return, but this now leaves the Padres extremely thin in the infield, specifically in the middle infield, where Adam Rosales and Jose Pirela are the only healthy players on the active roster. Ramirez's status should be updated prior to Wednesday's game.
