Entering the night, the shortstop had been 1-for-12 since returning from the disabled list on Sunday. Ramirez has 13 home runs, 60 RBI, 12 stolen bases, and a .276/.363/.457 slash line on the season.

Dodgers activated SS Hanley Ramirez from the 15-day disabled list.

He wound up spending the minimum amount of time on the disabled list with a strained oblique. Ramirez is back in the Dodgers' lineup Sunday, playing shortstop and hitting fifth. It's the first time this season he's batting anywhere lower than cleanup. Matt Kemp is remaining in the No. 4 spot.
Aug 24 - 12:50 PM

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly reiterated Thursday that Hanley Ramirez (oblique) should be activated on Sunday, the first day he's eligible.

Ramirez took batting practice and went through other drills again Thursday and appears to have come out of it no worse for the wear. The shortstop was batting .277/.367/.455 with 12 homers and 12 steals over 100 games before going on the disabled list.
Aug 21 - 7:18 PM

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.
Aug 17 - 1:06 PM

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.
