Dodgers | Hanley Ramirez to begin rehab assignment Saturday

Updating a previous report, Los Angeles Dodgers SS Hanley Ramirez (thumb) will begin a rehab assignment with Class A Rancho Cucamonga Saturday, April 27. Manager Don Mattingly said he is not concerned with his offense but wants to make sure Ramirez is comfortable throwing before he is activated from the disabled list. "He's worked really hard on his defense and I don't really want him to come back just to be back," Mattingly said. "I want him to be ready to play, and be able to play at a level that is natural, not where he has to think about throwing and how he's going to grip the ball and things like that. As soon as he's ready for that, we're ready for him."
