Ramirez will not play in Sunday's regular season finale, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Ramirez is simply receiving a regular day of rest prior to the playoffs, as the Dodgers have already clinched the NL West title. Look for Justin Turner or Miguel Rojas to man shortstop in his stead.

Ramirez is out of the lineup Friday against the Rockies.

Ramirez has been on a hot streak at the plate over the past couple weeks, going 9-for-22 over the past seven games. He will sit Friday in favor of Justin Turner at shortstop, who will bat cleanup for the Dodgers.

Ramirez will start his fourth straight game Sunday against the Cubs.

Ramirez was hampered by an elbow strain earlier in the week, but he appears to be over the ailment that cost him back-to-back games. The 30-year-old hasn't let his bumps and bruises affect his recent performance, as he's batting .362 with 10 RBI in the month of September. Although he hasn't homered since Aug. 29, Ramirez is a threat every time he enters the batter's box, and should be deployed in all formats.

Ramirez (elbow) is back in the lineup Thursday against the Cubs, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

Ramirez missed the last two games with a right elbow strain, but his absence Wednesday seemed more precautionary than anything. With no soreness reemerging overnight, Ramirez will slot back in at shortstop and attempt to help the Dodgers close in on a playoff berth.

Ramirez (elbow) won't need an MRI and could return as early as Thursday's game against the Cubs, the Dodgers' official site reports.

Manager Don Mattingly said that Ramirez was "going in the right direction" Wednesday, but that he was still day-to-day. The Dodgers appear to be playing it safe here, though with their lead over the Giants down to two games, they could look to push him back in there sooner rather than later.

Ramirez (elbow) is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Rockies.

Ramirez wasn't expected to play Wednesday after being scratched Tuesday with an elbow strain, and now that has been confirmed. He's still considered day-to-day at this point, but it's unclear how severe the strain is at this point. Miguel Rojas will start at shortstop in his place and bat eighth for the Dodgers.

Manager Don Mattingly was not optimistic that Ramirez (elbow) would be able to start Wednesday's game, AM 570's David Vassegh reports.

Ramirez was a late scratch Tuesday with an elbow strain. He felt something on a throw Monday night, but didn't think it would be an issue until he arrived at the park Tuesday. The good news is that the only issue with Ramirez's health is his ability to throw, so theoretically it shouldn't affect his bat when he is able to return. While he isn't expected to play Wednesday, he's still day-to-day and could return to the lineup by the weekend.

Ramirez has been scratched from the Dodgers' lineup Tuesday with a right elbow strain, SB Nation's Eric Stephen reports.

This injury popped up out of the blue, so it will be interesting to see how many games he misses with the ailment. Justin Turner will start at shortstop Tuesday, and Ramirez should be considered day-to-day for now.

Ramirez went 4-for-5 with a run, two RBI Monday in a win over the Padres.

Ramirez has seven hits over his last four games, which is a good omen for those in the fantasy playoffs. It's been a tough year for the 30-year-old, who has battled numerous upper and lower body injuries (leg currently). Ramirez is slashing .270/.357/.438 on the year with 13 home runs and 13 stolen bases.

Ramirez (leg) is now in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Padres, Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register reports.

Manager Don Mattingly left Ramirez out of his initial lineup, but apparently the 30-year-old showed enough during pregame warmups to warrant inclusion. Ramirez fell to his knees and grabbed at his leg after a single in the sixth inning of Friday's game, but the tightness did not prevent him from hitting a home run in the eighth.
