Marlins shortstop Hanley Ramirez is 3-for-7 with a triple since beginning a minor league rehab assignment Friday night with Single-A Jupiter.

If the production continues and he’s able to avoid setbacks, the 27-year-old will return to the major league lineup Wednesday against the Mets.

This according to MLB.com’s Christina De Nicola, who spoke directly with Hanley on Sunday morning.

Ramirez has been sidelined since August 2 with a sprained left shoulder. He was batting .243/.333/.379 with 10 home runs, 16 doubles, 45 RBI and 20 stolen bases through 385 plate appearances. Emilio Bonifacio has been filling in at shortstop all month.

    At this point, I suspect that Hanley is just being showcased for the winter trading season. Fan sentiment – if the Macondo Herald blogs and local spawrts tork raydeeo is any indication – is running surprisingly strongly in favor of moving him, and Scrooge McLoria’s accursed amulet, for either a veteran infielder with some pop or the usual package of EYPs.

    There’s actually been some sentiment for moving Scrooge McLoria on a one-for-one deal for Frank McCourt.

    Oh, and speaking of Macondo, there’s a terrific article in the Sunday 8/27 Macondo Herald by spowrts tawrk raydeeo lesser archon Dan LeBatard (who is a juvenile jackass most of the time) in which he interviews Jeff Van Gundy, coach of the Orlando Magic, about the deep-seated institutional hypocrisy of the NCAA. Van Gundy really rips the self-appointed lords of “amateur” sports a new one and calls for the entire system, which he describes as complete bullshit (his words), to be disbanded. Here’s a link if anyone is interested:
