GOODYEAR, Ariz.– Cleveland Indians third baseman Jose Ramirez left Sunday’s Cactus League game with a contusion to his left knee.

The two-time MLB All-Star fouled a ball off the inside of his knee as the Tribe played the White Sox. He was carted off the field.

The team said the X-rays were negative. There is no timetable for Ramirez’s return, but he will stay in Arizona for treatment. His status for Opening Day is to be determined.

The Indians are already set to begin the season without Francisco Lindor and Bradley Zimmer, who are on the 10-day injured list and Jason Kipnis, who is dealing with a calf strain.

Opening Day for Cleveland is Thursday in Minnesota with the home opener on April 1 against the White Sox.
