LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Dodgers have activated shortstop Hanley Ramirez from the disabled list, making room for him on the roster by placing pitcher Clayton Kershaw on the bereavement list.
Ramirez, who was not in the starting lineup Monday night against Colorado, had been out all season since tearing a ligament in his right thumb during the championship game of the World Baseball Classic. He had surgery on March 22.
Ramirez could start Tuesday's game, which happens to be Hanley Ramirez bobblehead night at Dodger Stadium.
The three-time All-Star played two rehab games for Class-A Rancho Cucamonga last weekend, going 3 for 6 while spending 12 innings at shortstop. He worked out with the big club at Dodger Stadium on Monday afternoon, and Los Angeles decided to activate him.
