Report: Dodgers now turning attention to Hanley
Since the Dodgers have locked up one franchise cornerstone — ace Clayton Kershaw — the team can turn its attention to infielder Hanley Ramirez. And, according to Yahoo!‘s Tim Brown, it already has.
Brown reported on Monday that the team is in “early stages” of negotiations with Ramirez, who finished eighth in the NL MVP voting this year despite appearing in only 86 games. He hit .345 with 20 homers and 57 RBIs in the limited playing time.
Ramirez will be a free agent after next season.
