Yesterday’s speculation that Hanley Ramirez might need shoulder surgery remains just that, but Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports that the Marlins shortstop will be examined by a doctor after an MRI exam revealed “left shoulder instability.”

Ramirez initially sprained his shoulder on August 2 and his recent rehab attempts have been derailed by the shoulder repeatedly popping out of the socket, with Frisaro writing that “makes it doubtful he will play the rest of this year.”

Ramirez previously had surgery on the same shoulder after the 2007 season and went to to play in 92 percent of the Marlins’ games over the next three years, but looks likely to finish this season with just 92 games and career-lows in batting average (.243), on-base percentage (.333), and slugging percentage (.379).

    Hate it for him. Maybe he can use this as motivation to drop his diva attitude.

    It’s Pazuzu in that accursed .342 amulet. He’s willing to double the price for the right Hobbit to take it to Indonesia and throw it into Mt. Merapi. He originally figured he could nickel-and-dime one of the lil’ fellers, what with economic opportunities being so scarce, but then he started watching CNN Business and realized there was another way to approach it besides Scrooge McLoria’s.

    “Instability?” What, his shoulder will explode if you shake it too much? It just might snap and hack 4 people to death with a hatchet?
