MLB Rumors: Dodgers working on Hanley Ramirez contract extension

The Los Angeles Dodgers know how valuable Hanley Ramirez can be and that’s why they’re attempting to sign the infielder long term, this according to Yahoo’s Tim Brown.

With Kershaw behind Dodgers, Hanley Ramirez negotiations remain in early stages and ongoing.

It should be noted neither side is currently feeling as if a deal is close, but rather the two sides are working on potential figures.

Ramirez, when healthy and motivated is an MVP candidate. Unfortunately, questions have arose in the past in regards to his motivation and his inability to stay healthy but so far in Los Angeles, he’s been the perfect teammate and gutted through broken bones.

The 3o-year-old will become a free agent after this coming season if no deal is agreed upon, though it doesn’t seem like there will be too many holdup’s considering Ramirez has already expressed a desire to return.

Ramirez, who played in 86 games for the Dodgers, hit an impressive .345 while clubbing 20 home runs and driving in 57 runs.
