Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez has played in just one game since jamming his right shoulder on August 4 when he fell into the stands along the third base line at Wrigley Field while tracking down a foul ball. But the situation is now rapidly improving.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly told Bill Plunkett of the Orange County Register that Ramirez had “no issues” with the shoulder during a pregame workout on Tuesday and should be back in the starting lineup for Wednesday night’s series finale against the Mets.

Ramirez is batting .359/.410/.641 with 11 home runs, seven steals and 37 RBI over 210 plate appearances this season for Los Angeles. Dee Gordon and Nick Punto have been filling in at shortstop.

    With Hanley back in the line up, expect more runs and more hits. In addition, ever since Hanley was out, Ethier productions been declining. Maybe Hanley can help Ethier cure his Dodger Blues.
