Cleveland (USA) .- The Cleveland Indian third baseman, Jose Ramirez, had to be removed from the field in an assistance vehicle after he received a blow below the left knee during a training match of spring.
The Indians played against the Chicago White Sox prior to the regular Major League championship.
The first report that the Indians gave indicates that Ramírez has a knee injury, but that they did not know the severity of the injury because they were going to take x-rays of the bone.
Max Moroff replaced Ramirez at third base for the rest of the game.
Ramirez is one of the strongest clubs in the Indians, after leading his team last season in the section of home runs, with 39, and in base percentage, which was .387.
The Dominican slugger also established a personal career-driven mark, with 105.
He also had 34 stolen bases, which became the third player in the history of the franchise with 30 home runs and 30 steals, joining Grady Sizemore (2008) and Joe Carter (1987). (EFE)
