Dodgers | More on Hanley Ramirez

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (thumb) has been taking batting practice and fielding ground balls, and he's using a special splint that allows him to throw while also protecting his right thumb. "It's awesome. No pain, nothing," Ramirez said. "Definitely it's going to happen way sooner than it's supposed to."

Fantasy Tip: Justin Sellers isn't getting it done with the bat in Ramirez's absence, so the Dodgers could really use an early return from Ramirez. When healthy, Ramirez is one of the best offensive shortstops for fantasy baseball purposes.
