Manny Ramirez, who did not travel with the Oakland A's to Japan, strained a hamstring last week and did not join the team in Sacramento.

A's manager Bob Melvin said Saturday night that Ramirez would not play in the three-game Bay Bridge exhibition series against the San Francisco Giants.

Meanwhile, left-hander Dallas Braden, who was placed on the 15-day disabled list earlier this week, suffered a setback in his recovery from shoulder surgery when he strained his throwing shoulder last week.

"He's not throwing right now," Melvin said. "We're on hold with that. I don't have a timetable with him."
