The Los Angeles Dodgers continue to list shortstop Hanley Ramirez as day to day with his jammed shoulder. However, the team doesn't currently plan on Ramirez requiring a stint on the disabled list to allow his ailment to recover, as manager Don Mattingly told reporters -- including Chad Thornburg of MLB.com -- that an MRI hasn't even been deemed necessary. "As long as he keeps going forward like this, there won't be an MRI," Mattingly said. "If he stalls and all of a sudden he's not getting any better, seems to be stuck somewhere, that's when they'll do it." Ramirez continues to show improvement since he jammed his shoulder on Sunday. Mattingly said the shortstop's range of motion has progressed each day as he continues to feel better and better. Los Angeles watched several key players deal with injuries this season, including center fielder Matt Kemp, but Ramirez isn't currently expected to join his teammates on the DL. While Ramirez's shoulder continues to recover, the Dodgers will keep using Dee Gordon at shortstop. Ramirez has been extremely effective during his time with the Dodgers this season, but he's also been hampered by multiple injuries this season. Over 209 plate appearances, the 29-year-old has hit .361/.411/.644 with 17 doubles and 11 home runs. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
