Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez will miss 4 to 6 weeks with strained hamstring.

Hanley Ramirez

An MRI on shortstop Hanley Ramirez’s left hamstring revealed nothing more than a strain, but the team has set his timetable for his recovery at four to six weeks.

That projects to somewhere between May 31 and June 14, a minimum of 24 games missed from the time of the injury.

Ramirez pulled up lame running the bases Friday against the San Francisco Giants, his fourth game back after missing the first 24 games of the season with a torn ligament in his right thumb.

The Dodgers have been using Dee Gordon exclusively since Ramirez’s injury.
