Mattingly said he expects Ethier and Ramirez to play tomorrow. He sounded more confident about Ethier than Ramirez.
According to the Dodgers’ medical staff, Ramirez isn’t reportedly in any further danger of hurting himself so it’s simply a pain tolerance, though he’s clearly been a shell of himself.
In addition to Ramirez playing, outfielder Andre Ethier is also expected to take the field, this after Ethier missed over a month prior to the start of the postseason. Ethier has played in every game of the series, though did not start in the Dodgers’ Game 2 loss in St. Louis.
While not considered completely healed, Ethier, despite issues with running, is still well enough to play and hasn’t reported too much soreness since he came off the bench in Game 2.
