Milwaukee Brewers third baseman Aramis Ramirez is scheduled for an MRI this morning on his left knee.
"I'm not feeling too good right now," he said.
Ramirez was limping noticeably as he arrived in the clubhouse, and had a wrap on his knee.
Asked if he thought the injury was serious, Ramirez was unsure.
"I don't know; I've never had knee problems before, so I don't know what to expect," he said. "It doesn't feel too good right now, but the good thing is it's not swelling at all. It's just sore."
He suffered the injury -- originally diagnosed as a strain -- while sliding into second base yesterday on a bloop double.
"I think I just jammed it in the dirt, because I didn't slide close to the bag," he said. "We'll see. Hopefully it'll be OK."
Ramirez said he's already talked to teammate Alex Gonzalez, who tore his ACL last season sliding into second base on a steal attempt. The general lack of swelling in Ramirez's knee appears to be a positive sign.
"It's not the same thing," Ramirez said. "He told me his knee swelled up right away. Even the next day it got real big, and mine isn't. I have just a little bit on the side."
