MILWAUKEE -- The Los Angeles Dodgers placed shortstop Hanley Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list Sunday with a strained right rib cage muscle.http://www.baseballgiantsmlb.com/authentic-mel-ott-giants-jersey/ . Ramirez felt tightness in his right side before Friday nights game, the start of a three-game series with Milwaukee. He walked in the first inning before being removed in the bottom half. Ramirez is hitting .277 with 12 homers and 58 RBIs in 100 games for the NL West leaders. He had an MRI on Saturday, and manager Don Mattingly said the severity of the injury was not as bad as initially feared. The move was made retroactive to Saturday, and Mattingly indicated Ramirez may just need the minimum 15 days to recover. "Were probably being a little cautious," he said. "He could be ready in 10 games but we dont want to (bring) him back in seven and then have something worse happen and maybe lose him the rest of the year. We want to assure ourselves hell be available down the stretch." Infielder Darwin Barney, who was acquired in a July 28 trade with the Chicago Cubs, was called up from Triple-A Albuquerque to take Ramirezs roster spot. Miguel Rojas started at shortstop on Sunday with Los Angeles trying to avoid a three-game sweep against the NL Central leaders. Mattingly said he planned to "mix and match" at shortstop in the interim, with Barney in the mix. It was the latest move this week for the busy Dodgers, who had a National League-best 66 wins entering Sunday. On Saturday night, they acquired right-hander Kevin Correia from the Minnesota Twins for a player to be named later or cash. Los Angeles is in the midst of a 20-day stretch without a day off, and Mattingly said Correia likely would make a spot start Monday in Atlanta. The rest of the rotation would be bumped a day for extra rest. Since Aug. 1, the Dodgers have placed pitchers Paul Maholm, Chris Perez, Paco Rodriguez and Josh Beckett on the disabled list. They acquired Roberto Hernandez from Philadelphia last week to take Becketts spot in the rotation. "As of right now, well use (Correia) for a spot start and out of the bullpen," Mattingly said. "Hypothetically speaking, during this stretch of games in a row we can give our guys a bit of a breather."http:///...wford-giants-jersey/ . In an interview with La Presse this week, the five-time Stanley Cup champion and three-time NHL scoring leader specifically took aim at wingers Thomas Vanek and Max Pacioretty, saying they cant show up in a 7-4 win over the New York Rangers in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference Final and come up empty in Game 6. http:///...-span-giants-jersey/ . This week, topics cover the World Series champion Red Sox, John Farrell and what to look forward to this off-season.With the bye weeks behind us and a number of teams in most leagues out of fantasy playoff contention, we run down the top pickups on a now thin waiver wire. WR Michael Crabtree (vs Rams)Last week: Injured A solid WR2 last year, Crabtree is expected to make his 2013 debut against St. Louis this weekend. Coming off a tough Achilles injury, and likely to be worked into the 49ers game plan slowly at least to start, dont expect Crabtree to hit his 2012 numbers right away. Hes still worth a pickup however as a possible WR3/flex play off the bat and possibly more moving forward this season. WR Miles Austin (vs Raiders)Last week: 1 catch, 17 yards Austin made a less than impressive return from a three-game absence Sunday against the Giants, but it should only get better from here. If the 29-year-olds hamstring holds up down the stretch, the hope is he supplants Terrence Williams in terms of usage in the Cowboys offence. While he may be more useful in real football, drawing attention away from Dez Bryant and Jason Witten, his play could warrant five-plus targets in a strong offence. WR Rod Streater (at Cowboys)Last week: 5 catches, 93 yards Two things conspire to make Streater worth a look if youre in need of help at WR. One, Matt McGloin providing a better pass game than the less-accurate, more prone to run Terrelle Pryor in Oakland, and two, Denarius Moores injury which elevated Streater to McGloins top target. McGloin looks to have secured the Raiders QB job at least for the time being and playing on a short week, Moore may not be ready to return until Week 14. Streater should see a similar workload on American Thanksgiving against a Cowboys defence that can certainly be scored on. RB Rashard p;Mendenhall (at Eagles)Last week: 13 carries, 54 yards, 1 TD Mendenhall had become the forgotten man in Arizona with fantasy players leaning more towards Andre Ellington of late. http:///...-mays-giants-jersey/. And while its clear the two are locked in a timeshare in the Cardinals backfield, its one that sees Mendenhall receive all the red zone touches. The two had similar workloads and totals in Arizonas big win over the Colts on Sunday, the only difference – and its a big one – was Mendenhalls touchdown. Take the veteran over the rookie in Arizona, hell score you more touchdowns. QB Matt Flynn (at Lions)Last week: 21/36, 218 yards, 1 TD The quarterback with nine lives appears to be in the best possible situation. Green Bay has something that Seattle, Oakland, and Buffalo doesnt and it makes Flynn look like a serviceable NFL QB. Flynns play in relief of Scott Tolzien against Minnesota warrants another start, unless of course Aaron Rodgers returns from injury. And do you remember the last time Flynn played Detroit while wearing a Packers jersey? It earned him a lot of money. Green Bay – and desperate fantasy owners – can only hope for a similar outcome this Thursday. TE Rob Housler (at Eagles)Last week: 4 catches, 51 yards Housler has flown under the radar all season and while that was certainly justified the first few weeks of the season, for desperate fantasy owners, hes been at least worth a look ever since. Housler scores very few touchdowns so hell never be mistaken as a TE1, but hes steady in averaging 50+ receiving yards per game of late. Arizona has been hot as of late and while thats unlikely to last too much longer, Housler is a viable injury replacement during their run.Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
