3 Reasons Hanley Ramirez's Injury Won't Impact the Dodgers' World Series Hopes

The Los Angeles Dodgers got bad news Wednesday morning, as starting shortstop Hanley Ramirez will be out anywhere from two to 10 weeks as a result of the sprained thumb he suffered in the World Baseball Classic, per the OC Register.  Although this is obviously worrisome, it is not the end of their season by any means.

There are certainly questions about Ramirez’s backup, whether it be Dee Gordon (at shortstop) or Juan Uribe (at third base).  As of this moment, it looks like Luis Cruz will play shortstop and Uribe will get the majority of the time at third.

However, none of this should really derail the Dodgers’ attempts to win the World Series.

 

UPDATE: The Dodgers now expect Ramirez to miss eight weeks, and this article has been updated to reflect that.
