Hanley Ramirez jammed his right thumb on Tuesday in the third inning of the Dominican Republic's 3-0 win over Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic championship game at AT&T Park, said Moises Alou, the club's general manager.

Ramirez left the game in the sixth inning for precautionary reasons and had his thumb placed in a splint. He will undergo further examination on Wednesday, when Ramirez rejoins the Dodgers at their Camelback Ranch training facility in Glendale, Ariz.

"Hanley, he jammed his thumb when he dove for that ball," Alou said after the Dominican Republic ran off eight consecutive wins to go undefeated and win the Classic for the first time. "It was pretty swollen. He's going to have an MRI on it [Wednesday] in Arizona."
