Dodgers | Hanley Ramirez to be out for a while

Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly didn't sound optimistic about the chances of SS Hanley Ramirez (hamstring) returning from the disabled list when he's eligible. "A while ... I hope that puts it in the right category," Mattingly said. "You never really know when a guy's ready or not because you can't ever get to the intensity that you need to get to on the hamstring where you're going to explode and ask for more of your body. It's going to be a while." Ramirez, on the other hand, is hoping for a quick recovery.

Fantasy Tip: Gordon started at shortstop both Saturday and Sunday in Ramirez's absence. Justin Sellers is still on roster, and he may get the occasional start at shortstop, but Gordon should now be owned in all leagues because of his speed and the fact that Ramirez could be out for quite a while. Also, the Dodgers are considering moving Ramirez to third base whenever he does return.
