Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez was only supposed to miss a couple of games as a result of his sprained left shoulder, but the absences have continued to pile up and the Fish were forced to make an unfortunate decision late Wednesday night.
According to Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post, Ramirez was placed on the disabled list after Wednesday’s 6-2 loss to the Braves. The move was made retroactive to August 3, so the 27-year-old will be eligible to return around this time next week.
Ramirez is batting just .243/.333/.379 with 10 home runs, 16 doubles, zero triples, 45 RBI and 20 stolen bases through 385 plate appearances this season. He’s been caught stealing a whopping 10 times.
Emilio Bonifacio will continue handling the shortstop position while Hanley recovers.
