As we heard this morning, Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez was held out of the lineup for the second straight game due to irritation in the AC joint in his right shoulder. According to Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles, Dodgers manager Don Mattingly said this afternoon that Ramirez actually got a cortisone shot in his shoulder on Wednesday night and wasn’t even available to pinch-hit today.

Ramirez is expected to sit out again tomorrow at the very least, but the hope is that he’ll be able to avoid a stint on the disabled list.

“Hanley came in today feeling much better, so there’s actually been a lot of success with those shots,” Mattingly said.

As opposed to last season, Ramirez has remained mostly healthy so far this season, appearing in 63 of the Dodgers’ 68 games. While he hasn’t been nearly as productive with the bat as he was last year, he’s still hitting .255 with 10 home runs and an .800 OPS. The 30-year-old is currently in his walk year.

    No mention of front running leech Drake’s “Houston Appreciation Weekend”? What a shame.

    I don’t see how they don’t sign him. Granted he dropped off from last year but he sure makes this lineup stronger. It’s more than the Dodgers having tons of cash too. They have a lot of money potentially coming off the books next season. Beckett’s 15+ is out as might be Dan Haren’s 10 million if he doesn’t reach 200 innings. If Wilson leaves his 8.5 million on the table that would be way more than enough for Hanley season to season. They have a ton of young cheap talent through the minor like Lee, Seager, Urias, and Pederson. Plus they were willing to spend over 120 million on Tanaka. There is more than enough money for Hanley.
