Mar 31 Dodgers placed SS Hanley Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 22, with a torn ligament in his right thumb.
Advice: It's just a procedural move, as Ramirez underwent surgery earlier this week and is unlikely to make his season debut until late-May. The Dodgers will go with Justin Sellers at shortstop until he returns.
We were told Hanley's rehab would take two months, so naturally I assumed he was straight on the 60-day DL.
However the Dodgers have put him on the 15-day DL.....AND made it retroactive?
Something could be up here. Might be worth putting buying feelers out for him.
