Aramis Ramirez went down this weekend with a slightly strained right quad, but the injury was not expected to keep him out for long. Here, three days later, and Ramirez is still out.

Third baseman Aramis Ramirez did not start for the second straight game because of a sore right quad. He continued to get treatment and was not available to pinch-hit. His status was day to day. The Cubs called up infielder Bobby Scales from Triple-A Iowa as insurance. Muskat Ramblings.

Ramirez was hot before he went down, though that matters only for his season stat line at this point – his heat came on too late to, you know, actually help the Cubs win meaningful games.
