Dodgers | Hanley Ramirez needs surgery

Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (thumb) has a torn ligament in his right thumb and will undergo surgery Friday, March 22. His thumb will be immobilized for three weeks, and he's expected to be out for eight weeks.

Fantasy Tip: Luis Cruz is Don Mattingly's first choice to replace Ramirez at short while he heals. However, Dee Gordon could be considered if some combination of Jerry Hairston Jr., Nick Punto and Juan Uribe isn't hacking it at third base.
