DETROIT (AP) — Minnesota Twins center fielder Wilkin Ramirez left Saturday’s game against the Detroit Tigers after a scary collision on a fly ball.
Omar Infante lifted a fly to left-center in the sixth inning Saturday, and Twins left fielder Josh Willingham was under it when Ramirez came speeding over to try to make the play. Ramirez did catch the ball, holding onto it for the third out after colliding with Willingham.
Ramirez remained down on the ground well into the break between innings. He was finally able to walk off under his own power, but when he got back to the dugout, he appeared to be flexing his jaw.
Aaron Hicks took his place in center field in the seventh.
