Ramirez tests his strained right hamstring

NEW YORK -- Ramon Ramirez threw indoors on Monday, passing the first test on his strained right hamstring. Doctors were to examine him later in the day to determine if he needs to spend any time on the disabled list.

Ramirez sustained the injury while he was running from the bullpen to the mound after Johan Santana completed his no-hitter against the Cardinals on Friday. Manager Terry Collins said he had never seen an injury happen in person on a celebration before.

Ramirez was acquired before the season in a trade with the San Francisco Giants. Entering Monday's game, the right-hander was 2-1 with a 4.78 ERA.
