Los Angeles - Los Angeles Dodgers star outfielder Manny Ramirez was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday due to a calf injury.

Ramirez suffered the injury in the first inning of last Friday's 8-4 loss to the Cardinals. It was just his second game back from a stint on the DL for a right hamstring injury.

The left-fielder missed the next three games before an MRI Tuesday revealed a strain in his right calf.

Ramirez was hitting .317 with eight homers and 39 RBI in 61 games this season.

To take his place on the roster, the Dodgers activated catcher Brad Ausmus from the 60-day disabled list. Ausmus had back surgery in April.
