    Hanley Ramirez injured his right thumb diving for a ball at third base during the championship game of the World Baseball Classic on Tuesday night, and he'll get an MRI in Arizona as he returns to spring camp for the Los Angeles Dodgers. An MRI indicated that Ramirez has a torn ligament in his thumb, the team said Thursday. The thumb will be immobilized for three weeks, and Ramirez is expected to return to competition in eight weeks, according to the club. An MRI exam taken on Wednesday night revealed the ligament tear, which Ramirez sustained on Tuesday night when diving for a ground ball while playing third base in the Dominican Republic's 3-0 victory over Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic final. The team reportedly had been unhappy that Ramirez wasn't playing shortstop for the Dominican Republic in the WBC, but it's the sort of injury that could happen anywhere in the infield.
