HANLEY RAMIREZ, ASSIGNED TO THE DODGERS IN EXCHANGE
Mon, 30 Jul 2012 08:18 PM EDT

The L.A Dodgers added an impact bat for their postseason push, taking star infielder Hanley Ramirez in a 4-player trade with the Marlins.

It was actually the 2nd multi-player trade in just 48 hours for the Marlins, who’ve begun a July fire sale after disappointing thru the 1st 4 months of this season.

A 3-time All-Star and former National League batting champ, Ramirez voiced mixed feelings over being dealt from the Miami Marlins, where he has spent the 1st 7 years of his career.

“For me this day isn’t particularly easy. The Miami Marlins have been my family, the only one I had in baseball,” Ramirez announced. “I will always remember who gave me that 1st opportunity that every human being needs. They will continue to be in my heart.”

The Los Angeles Dodgers also bought left-handed reliever Randy Choate from Miami for starter Nate Eovaldi and minor league right-hander Scott McGough.

Ramirez, 28 years old is a former National League Rookie of the Year and led major league shortstops with 124 home runs and a .521 slugging percentage from 2006 through 2010.

“He meant a lot to this organization, a premium talent an uber talent in a lot of respects,” Marlins president of baseball operations Larry Beinfest announced.

But Ramirez has been a major disappointment over the last 2 seasons. He moved to 3rd base this past winter to accommodate free-agent addition Jose Reyes but is batting just .246 with a .752 OPS for the Marlins.

“It’s sad to see Hanley go to another team,” Reyes added. “We developed a great relationship. I feel he was one of my real good friends on the team. Anytime someone close to you goes to another team it kind of surprises you a touch and you get unhappy a tiny bit.”

The L.A Dodgers are hoping that Ramirez will be reinvigorated by a change of scenery and give them another run producer to enhance Matt Kemp and Andre Ethier in the batting order. The Dodgers rank 12th in the National League with 379 runs scored and is 13th in OPS at .684.

“The addition of a hitter the caliber of Hanley Ramirez improves our lineup from top to bottom, inserting a definite run producer to go along with Matt and Andre,” Dodger GM Ned Colletti said in a statement. “We’re excited for Hanley to begin a new chapter in L.A.”

Ramirez is making $15 million in the 4th year of a 6-year, $70 million deal. He’s scheduled to make $15.5 million in 2013 and $16 million in 2014. NFL odds

Ramirez could play either area on the left-hand side of the infield for the L.A Dodgers. Shortstop Dee Gordon is on the DL with a torn ligament in his right thumb that might sideline him till mid-August and is batting only .229 with 17 RBIs.

The Los Angeles Dodgers haven’t gotten much production from their 3rd basemen, with Juan Uribe batting just .190 with 2 homers and 17 RBIs and others doing little at the spot.

Los Angeles is 2½ games behind National League West-leading San Francisco. After a 32-15 start, the Los Angeles Dodgers are just 21-30 since.
