Let's face it, the Dodgers' infielders have not contributed to the offense as much as they should.
James Loney is having the slowest year of his career so far. Luis Cruz is new to the team, but still batting under .250 in 19 games. Juan Uribe has struggled mightily at third base. Mark Ellis has played an average second base, nothing special there, but A.J. Ellis has played above average at catcher, giving them a minor boost in the infield.
No one on the entire Dodgers' team is hitting above .300 and that is an area for concern. The infield has struggled and that is why Hanley is there to bring them above water. Ramirez has never hit below .292 for an entire season, he's in danger of that this year unless he hits the cover off the ball the rest of the way.
He is a guy that can hit 20-30 home runs, knock in 70 RBI and steal 30 bases a season. If he can stick around in LA for a while, this team will have a scary lineup with Ethier, Kemp and also Loney batting around him.
