The 29-year old is expected to miss eight weeks.

“It’s something I can’t control,” Ramirez told reporters at the Dodger spring training camp in Glendale, Az. ”It could’ve happened anywhere. It could’ve happened here. It unfortunately happened in the WBC. It’s very disappointing.”
Added Mattingly, “You’ve got to go back to what the WBC is all about. Just because one of our guys gets hurt, doesn’t change that,” he said. “The tournament, to me, was great, totally co

The legend of Yasiel Puig continues to grow, and speculation that he will start with the year with the Dodgers went from 0% just a week ago to … something non-0% recently, though the long-term question remains where he’ll end up playing for the team even if he does live up to the hype.
Sure, Carl Crawford is out for a week or two (or a month) and he could get injured again, but...
Shortstop Hanley Ramirez of the Los Angeles Dodgers suffered a torn ligament in his thumb and will miss the next two months of action. His blow not only impacts the Dodgers, but fantasy owners as well at a position that is often times hard to find top tier talent at.

Crawford, recovering from ligament-replacement surgery on Aug. 23, didn't make his spring training debut until March 17 and played left field for the first time on Saturday. He hit a solo home run...
I find it fascinating that few bring up the 1941 Brooklyn Dodgers when talking about the series of Dodgers teams that lost to the New York Yankees in the World Series. The Dodgers won the NL Pennant in 1947, 1949, 1952, 1953, 1955 and 1956, losing to the Yankees in 5 of the 6 World Series. When those Dodgers teams are talked about, much is said about Gil Hodges, Jackie Robinson,...

There is a measure of consolation for teams that lose players to injuries related to the World Baseball Classic - insurance from the WBC may cover those players’ salaries if they miss time during the regular season.
In general, a player must miss at least 30 days for the coverage to apply, according to a major-league source. Once he misses at least 30 days, his salary for...
