Indians Get Good News On Jose Ramirez’s Knee

Indians fans have been holding their breath since the moment that All-Star third baseman Jose Ramirez was carted off the field in Glendale Sunday.

The slugger left Sunday’s game after he fouled a ball off his left knee, and with the pain he suffered it could have been thought it would be a lengthy injury.

While a lot still needs to be known among the injury, Jeff Passan of ESPN reports that X-Rays On Ramirez’s knee are negative and nothing for now appears broken.

X-rays on Indians star Jose Ramirez showed no signs of a broken bone, a source tells ESPN. Excellent news for Cleveland, which is already missing Francisco Lindor. Timetable on Ramirez’s return unclear but Indians breathing a sigh of relief after he fouled a pitch off left leg.

Best case is likely it’s a bad contusion and Ramirez will miss a few days, but possibly could play in Thursday’s opener – but if not it still doesn’t sound like it’s going to be a long term injury.

For now the team could go into Thursday’s opener with Brad Miller, Max Moroff and Eric Stamets all playing in the teams’ infield.
