• Hanley Ramirez, who lacerated the knuckle on his right ring finger when he hit a cooling fan in the dugout at Busch Stadium just before the All-Star break, expects to be in the lineup on Friday. He took two stitches in the hand but said the knuckle is doing well and that he is able to swing a bat.

"There wasn't any concern about it," Ramirez said. "Hopefully I will be in the lineup."
