Dodgers Dodgers fear Hanley could be out two months

Quote:
Results of Wednesday's MRI on starting shortstop Hanley Ramirez's right thumb are not expected until Thursday, but the club fears he could be out two months or more due to an injury suffered in Tuesday night's final of the World Baseball Classic.

Ramirez was hurt diving for a ground ball at third base, a position the Dodgers had hoped he wouldn't be playing during the tournament. Manager Don Mattingly said the Dodgers' medical department, after speaking to colleagues with Team Dominican Republic, speculated that a mild sprain could sideline Ramirez up to two weeks. But there are fears of a more serious injury that could sideline him up to 10 weeks.

"They've painted both pictures, and it's a pretty big window," said Mattingly. "We're guessing. They're going from a guy coming out of a big game, to a guy who also stayed in the game and had a single. Until the MRI, we're guessing. He could be feeling great, we don't know. We're concerned enough to get an MRI. He's coming out of a game, a pretty big game -- guys don't want to come out of those."

The Dodgers now have potential issues on the left side of the infield. Shortstop Dee Gordon, who figured to return to Triple-A Albuquerque with Ramirez starting, has a left ankle sprain that is considered mild, but he's missed two games.
