Indians’ Jose Ramirez carted off after fouling ball off leg

Jose Ramirez

The Cleveland Indians are not doing well on the injury front on the eve of the new season.

Third baseman Jose Ramirez fouled a ball off his leg during Sunday’s spring training game and went down hard, seemingly unable to get up. He had to be carted off the field.

Cleveland will already be without Jason Kipnis on Opening Day, and Francisco Lindor won’t be ready either as he battles back from a calf strain. Lindor will be back soon, but a long-term injury to Ramirez is not something Cleveland can afford. The third baseman hit .270 with 39 home runs last season, which led to a second consecutive top three finish in MVP voting.

These injuries do have a silver lining. They may have played a role in one prominent veteran winning a roster spot with the team.
