GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Hanley Ramirez arrived Wednesday at the Los Angeles Dodgers' spring camp with his injuries healed, yet still feeling disappointed with the way last season ended with a loss to the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLCS.
The World Series eluded the Dodgers after Ramirez suffered a rib fracture when he was struck by a fastball from Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly in Game 1. He attempted to play with the injury but was never a factor throughout the rest of the series, which the Cardinals won in six games.
His importance to the Dodgers offense was never more apparent than in their National League Division Series victory over the Atlanta Braves. He had eight hits in 16 at-bats. He tied a Dodgers postseason record with six hits for extra bases.
