Ramirez tweaked his back in the bottom of the third inning attempting to make a play on a ground ball. He will likely return to the lineup after the break.

The seven-year veteran is hitting .282 with eight homers, 41 RBIs and a .718 OPS in 94 games this season. He has played at least 156 games each of the last four seasons.
