Hanley Ramirez could appear as a pinch-hitter as soon as this weekend, but Brian Wilson is likely to be activated by the Dodgers before Matt Kemp. Ramirez, who jammed his shoulder last Sunday, took batting practice at Dodger Stadium on Friday. He said "maybe" to the possibility of starting Saturday. "Hanley is pretty optimistic, but he hasn't thrown yet," Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said. However, Mattingly said the Dodgers no longer are worried that Ramirez might require a stint on the disabled list.

ST. LOUIS -- Matt Kemp took batting practice before the other Dodgers at Busch Stadium on Wednesday but said he still isn't able to run. The Dodgers slugger is on the disabled list after spraining his left ankle sliding into home plate in Toronto on July 21. "I'm not really ready to run yet," Kemp said. "My body is the one that's going to tell me when I'm ready. " Manager Don Mattingly agreed that "sprinting and cutting and stopping, that's going to be the problem" for the center fielder.

An MRI exam on Howie Kendrick's left knee, injured in a collision with right fielder Collin Cowgill on Monday night, revealed a sprain but no significant structural damage. The Angels will give the injury four or five days to heal before deciding whether to place the second baseman on the disabled list. “He's sore, and there's some swelling, but there's no doubt it could have been a lot worse,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. “Hopefully it will be more short-term. We'll see how it progresses.” To add infield depth, the Angels called up Grant Green, acquired from Oakland in last week's Alberto Callaspo trade, and sent reliever Daniel Stange back to triple-A Salt Lake.

The Dodgers' winning ways continued Sunday, but so did their hearts skipping a beat. On an afternoon the Dodgers won their 14th consecutive road game with a 1-0 victory over the Chicago Cubs in Wrigley Field, their thoughts went less to extending their lead in the National League West to 5 1/2 games than the condition of shortstop Hanley Ramirez. Ramirez, who has ignited the offense since returning from his second stint on the disabled list, left the game clutching his right shoulder after tumbling into the stands when making a catch in foul territory.

CHICAGO - Saturday was Adrian Gonzalez's turn to take a day off. With the Dodgers piling up wins these days regardless of who's in their lineup, Manager Don Mattingly has been increasingly willing to give days off to his regulars to ensure they will be better-rested for the season's final stretch. "Obviously, it makes it easier," Mattingly said of his team's record run. Hanley Ramirez and Carl Crawford were out of the lineup Friday. Andre Ethier rested Thursday.

OAKLAND -- Albert Pujols has partially torn the plantar fascia ligament in his left foot and was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday morning. The injury is expected to sideline the Angels slugger for several weeks and possibly for the rest of the season. Pujols will be replaced on the roster by outfielder Kole Calhoun, who was called up after hitting .354 with 12 homers and 49 RBIs in 59 games for triple-A Salt Lake. Pujols has been hobbled all season with plantar fasciitis, and he aggravated it on a ninth-inning, two-run single against the Oakland Athletics on Friday night.

TORONTO  - With his left ankle still swollen Wednesday, Matt Kemp was placed on the disabled list for the third time this season. "We were hoping that over 48 hours, it would get better," Manager Don Mattingly said. "It hasn't. " The move is retroactive to Monday, meaning Kemp could be activated Aug. 6, when the Dodgers play the second game of a four-game series in St. Louis. But Mattingly acknowledged he didn't know whether Kemp would be ready to play by then.

TORONTO - Matt Kemp soon could be back on the disabled list. Over the next day or two, the Dodgers' medical staff will determine whether a sprained left ankle will require that Kemp be put on the disabled list for the third time this season. Kemp's ankle was still considerably swollen Monday. "I don't know if we really know how bad it is," Manager Don Mattingly said. Mattingly backtracked from comments he made the previous day, when he said he was confident Kemp would avoid the DL. Kemp rolled his ankle in a home-plate collision Sunday in his first game back from his latest DL stint.

TORONTO - Matt Kemp could soon be placed on the disabled list for the third time this season. Manager Don Mattingly said Kemp, who sprained his left ankle Sunday, probably will miss the Dodgers' three-game series in Toronto against the Blue Jays. Mattingly also sounded less confident than he was a day earlier that Kemp would avoid the DL. “I probably don't feel as good about it today as I did yesterday,” Mattingly said. “It could go the wrong direction.” The decision of whether to place Kemp on the DL could be made in the next 48 hours, during which the team's medical staff will see if the swelling in his ankle subsides.
