This isn’t official or anything, but at least one writer with Marlins sources — Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post — is hearing rumors that Hanley Ramirez may need shoulder surgery.

Ramirez had been rehabbing and was thought to be ready to come off the disabled list on Friday. But he left a minor league rehab game last night after feeling more discomfort in his left shoulder. He was to undergo further evaluation today.

Whether that has already happened and surgery is being discussed or whether that’s just some unreliable buzz from the sewing circle is unclear, but either way there’s a very good chance that Ramirez’s season is over.

    It’s over whether he needs surgery or not. The announcers on tonight’s Feesh-Mutts fiasco were actively discussing the probability that the Hanster is finished for the year.

    Still looking for that Hobbit to throw Hanley’s accursed amulet into an erupting volcano. What, no volunteers? Man, what’s lower than a gutless Hobbit?
