Dodgers News And Rumors: Hanley Ramirez Extension In Early Stages

Hanley RamirezMoney doesn’t seem to be a problem for the Los Angeles Dodgers these days as they continue to spend at any cost to put the best product on the field. The Dodgers have already extended Clayton Kershaw, who is easily the best pitcher in baseball, but they could potentially add two more huge contracts to the payroll.

One of them could be Masahiro Tanaka, but the Dodgers bidding for his services against several other free-spending teams. The other is Hanley Ramirez, who is one of the best hitters in baseball and a Dodgers fan favorite. After an ugly situation with the Marlins, Ramirez has been a model citizen here in Los Angeles. When he was healthy this past season Ramirez hit .345 with 20 home runs and 57 RBI in 86 games.

Yasiel Puig was credited with the Dodgers resurgence this past season, but Ramirez was equally as important during that stretch. After Kershaw received his extension, Ramirez congratulated him on social media and jokingly asked if there was any money left over him. Ramirez wants to stay in Los Angeles and hopefully management can take care of him before the start of the season.
