Manny’s MRI is OK

The Red Sox were expected to issue a statement on the MRI results of Manny Ramirez’s sore right knee following tonight’s game.

Team sources indicate Ramirez’s knee has no structural damage, but he may need to keep resting. There was no official word on whether the star left-fielder would have to shut down for the remainder of the season.

Sox manager Terry Francona said prior to Wednesday’s game that doctors were looking to see whether there was a potential stress fracture indicated below Ramirez’s right knee cap, but that does not appear to be the case.
