• Dodgers react to tough news on Hanley's injury

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Mar 22, 2013
    Dodgers manager Don Mattingly hasn't backed away from his initial thought that Luis Cruz will replace the injured Hanley Ramirez at shortstop over Dee Gordon. In those four weeks, Cruz committed only two errors and the Dodgers went 9-12. Speaking after Thursday's Christina-Taylor Green charity benefit game, the Dodgers manager said he remembered the way Cruz "calmed us last year" when he took over at shortstop for Dee Gordon, who coincidentally sustained a right thumb injury very similar to the one Ramirez had Tuesday night when he dove for a grounder in the World Baseball Classic. As Mattingly pointed out before the game, however, he expects to have three healthy outfielders to start the season in Matt Kemp, Andre Ethier and Carl Crawford, so getting Puig playing time won't be an easy trick.
