Hanley Ramirez is a key player for the Los Angeles Dodgers as they try to meet the lofty expectations set by their payroll. That mostly has to do with his bat, but he also plays a premium position defensively as the team’s starting shortstop.
Ramirez’s position has been a topic of interest this off-season as the Dodgers try to decide if they view Ramirez as a shortstop or third baseman in the future. He has already switched back and forth some in his career, and it seems likely that he will ultimately end up at the hot corner.
That’s for later. As of now Ramirez will stay at short, and he made a great play early in the spring at that spot on Monday (video from MLB.com).
