GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) - Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly has no qualms about playing Hanley Ramirez at shortstop all season.
Ramirez was a shortstop his entire career until last season, when Miami moved him to third base to make room for free agent Jose Reyes. But it wasn't long before the dominoes began to fall. After changing positions, Ramirez changed teams when the struggling Marlins traded him to the Dodgers on July 25 in a multiplayer deal.
In August, he was back at shortstop. But it wasn't a smooth transition for Ramirez, who acknowledged that he struggled in his old spot.
