Quad injury keeping Aramis out of lineup
CHICAGO -- Cubs third baseman Aramis Ramirez was not expected to play until Friday at the earliest, and he may be sidelined even longer because of a strained right quad he aggravated running to first base on Tuesday.

Ramirez had to come out of Tuesday's game after the sixth inning because of the injury, which has been bothering him for a while.

"This just didn't sneak up last night," Cubs manager Mike Quade said Wednesday.

The Cubs have Thursday off and will re-evaluate Ramirez when they open a three-game series Friday against the Cardinals.
