Hanley Ramirez (oblique) is expected to be activated from the disabled list on August 24, the first day he's eligible.
Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Sunday that Ramirez is swinging at about 90 percent. The shortstop has also been playing catch. Ramirez was batting .277/.367/.455 with 12 homers and 12 steals over 100 games before going on the disabled list. Aug 17 - 2:47 PM

Dodgers president Stan Kasten said Saturday that the club has tabled contract extension talks with Hanley Ramirez until after the season.

"Both sides have agreed we'll sit down and talk at the end of the season and decide," Kasten said. "We both decided that makes the most sense. As difficult a season as he's had physically, there is still lots of time for him to have an enormous impact for us." CBS Sports' Jon Heyman has previously reported that there was a "significant gap" between the two sides when an extension was last discussed, with Hanley's camp wanting a deal in "excess of $130 million." It's a lot to give an injury-prone player, but Ramirez will be arguably the best free agent bat this winter.

Hanley Ramirez (oblique) played catch Wednesday.

It's a step in the right direction for the injured shortstop, who is aiming to return from the 15-day disabled list when first eligible (on August 24). Ramirez has been out since August 9 because of a strained right oblique. Miguel Rojas and Darwin Barney are filling in at shortstop for the National League West-leading Dodgers.
Aug 14 - 10:33 AM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Sunday that he thinks Hanley Ramirez (oblique) could be activated from the disabled list when first eligible.

The Dodgers have placed Hanley on the DL, but Mattingly said the shortstop's right oblique strain is a minor one and he could be game-ready in 10 days or so. Ramirez is eligible to return on August 24, and it sounds like he could be activated on that date. The club will use Miguel Rojas and Darwin Barney at shortstop in the meantime.
Aug 10 - 12:21 PM

Dodgers placed SS Hanley Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to August 9, with a strained right oblique.

Ramirez suffered the injury during Friday's game and an MRI revealed the oblique strain. He's likely to be sidelined until September. Miguel Rojas is playing shortstop Sunday, but Darwin Barney has also been called up to help out.
Aug 10 - 11:30 AM

Hanley Ramirez (side) is not in the Dodgers starting lineup on Saturday.

The Dodgers are still awaiting the results of an MRI that was taken after Hanley departed Friday's game with tightness in his side. It sounds like a 15-day disabled list could be on the horizon. Miguel Rojas will start in his place on Saturday.
Aug 9 - 3:34 PM

Hanley Ramirez (side) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Saturday to determine the severity of his injury.

Ramirez was removed from Friday's game against the Brewers after just one inning due to tightness in his right side. Side injuries can be tricky though, especially if the dreaded oblique is involved, so fantasy owners should cross their fingers and hope for the best from Saturday's MRI.
Aug 9 - 12:08 AM

Hanley Ramirez was removed from Friday's game against the Brewers due to tightness in his right side.

He was replaced at shortstop by Miguel Rojas. The Dodgers are calling his removal merely a precautionary measure, and the All-Star shortstop should be considered day-to-day.
Aug 8 - 9:18 PM

Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI as the Dodgers beat the Angels 7-0 on Thursday.

Han-Ram was given the day off from the field, and he seemed to enjoy designated hitting duties, battering beleaguered Angels' hurler C.J. Wilson. Ramirez has hit safely in six of his last seven. Despite having missed some time with injuries, Ramirez is on pace to finish with 17 home runs, 17 stolen bases, and 81 RBI. Along with a .275 batting average from the shortstop position, that's a pretty good fantasy player. Not as superb as last season, but still pretty good.
Aug 8 - 1:40 AM

Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-5 and hit a game-winning three-run homer in the bottom of the 12th as the Dodgers beat the Cubs 5-2 on Saturday.

It was Ramirez's first career walkoff homer, believe it or not. He also doubled and walked in the contest. He has 12 homers and 56 RBI in 94 games this year. Obviously, he hasn't been nearly as effective as he was last year, but he's one of just two regular shortstops with an 800+ OPS this year, joining Troy Tulowitzki. Ramirez is at .820.
Aug 3 - 1:56 AM

Hanley Ramirez (wrist) has returned to the Dodgers starting lineup for Friday's game against the Giants.

Ramirez has been sidelined since Sunday, when he was drilled on the hand by a fastball from Trevor Rosenthal. The oft-injured superstar has had his share of nicks and bruises this season, but has still managed to appear in 86 games, hitting .273/.372/.463 with 11 homers and 49 RBI.
Jul 25 - 7:07 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is still "feeling it" in his hand.

Mattingly said Ramirez hasn't swung a bat since being hit in the hand by a pitch by Cardinals closer Trevor Rosenthal on Sunday. He has picked a bat up and "moved it around," according to Mattingly, for whatever that's worth. He's been called day-to-day since sustaining the injury, but Ramirez hasn't been in the lineup since Sunday and the Dodgers will have to think about a DL trip if he doesn't show great improvement soon.
Jul 23 - 10:38 PM

Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is out of the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday night versus the Pirates.

Hanley was struck by pitches on the left shoulder and wrist in the Dodgers' win over the Cardinals on Sunday night and hasn't played since. He's still day-to-day.
Jul 23 - 4:44 PM

Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is not in the Dodgers' starting lineup Tuesday night versus the Pirates.

Ramirez was the struck by pitches on the left shoulder and wrist Sunday night in St. Louis. X-rays have been taken and came back negative, but the shortstop is still pretty sore. Justin Turner will again fill in.
Jul 22 - 3:31 PM

A second X-ray on Hanley Ramirez's left hand came back negative.

Ramirez passed a preliminary test Sunday after exiting following a hit by pitch, but the Dodgers wanted to give him another one just in case. The shortstop is out of Monday's lineup but should be back in there soon enough.
