As first reported by MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick, the Dodgers have activated shortstop Hanley Ramirez from the disabled list. He will start and bat cleanup for Los Angeles on Tuesday night against the Padres after missing one full month with a hamstring strain.
Chris Capuano was placed on the 15-day disabled list in a corresponding roster move due to a left lat strain. He’s likely to be sidelined for three weeks.
Ramirez opened the 2013 regular season on the disabled list after suffering a torn ligament in his left thumb while playing third base for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic. He debuted for the Dodgers on April 29 then strained his hamstring on May 3, appearing in only four games.
Dodgers shortstops are batting just .182/.272/.271 so far in 2013. The team is 24-32.
