Randy Knorr On Wilson Ramos’ Hand Injury

“That really sucks, man. This guy (Ramos), he’s a really good player. Stuff just shows up. He did this about a week ago. We’re playing down in Jupiter, and he took a swing, and you know, that’s part of being a bench coach. I watch all that stuff, too, you know. Young guys, you know, they pull up lame or something doesn’t look right. And I noticed that and he came in after an at bat in Jupiter and I said, ‘you alright, man?’ And he said, ‘I don’t know. My wrist feels funny.’ And yesterday, we’re watching and that last at bat he had, he took a swing, it was like the second pitch, he took a swing and he fouled it off over to the first base dugout and I’d seen it. And Rick Schu, our hitting coach, came over to me and he goes, ‘hey Randy, did you see that?’ And I go, ‘yeah.’ And then he take a fastball down the middle. Now, Wilson Ramos has never taken a fastball down the middle. Ever. So when he came in, I said, ‘what’s going on with you, man?’ And he said, ‘I don’t know; it doesn’t feel right.’ So, we took him out of the game, and [we] don’t know. He’s flying up to our hand doctor today. But I mean, for Wilson Ramos to come out of the game, it just doesn’t look good.”
