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.
