Indians' 3B Ramirez out with broken hand for playoff push

CLEVELAND (AP) The Cleveland Indians have been dealt a major blow at the worst time possible.

Third baseman Jose Ramirez, who has been on a hitting tear after a slow start, has a broken right hand and will be sidelined indefinitely as Cleveland tries to catch Minnesota in the AL Central or capture an AL wild-card berth.

Ramirez was placed on the injured list Sunday with a fractured hamate bone, an injury that typically takes over a month to heal. He was removed from Saturday's game in the first inning after swinging at a pitch, and manager Terry Francona said he's been dealing with soreness in his wrist for some time.
