Hanley Ramirez and his sore shoulder get another day off. Not in #Dodgers lineup for series finale in KC
— Bill Plunkett (@billplunkettocr) June 25, 2014
Without Ramirez, the defense improves slightly, however; the offense goes down also. This year he is batting a solid .269/.354/.469 with 11 home runs and 46 RBI's. When he is out his bat will be missed. In the end, the Dodgers are better with him in the lineup mainly because of his bat. Because of his defense, they may not be so bad without him after all.
