Dodgers activate Hanley Ramirez, place Clayton Kershaw on bereavement list

2 Comments

Prior to tonight’s game, the Dodgers announced that shortstop Hanley Ramirez was activated from the 15-day disabled list while left-hander Clayton Kershaw was placed on the bereavement list.

Ramirez, who had surgery on March 22 to repair a torn thumb ligament, went 3-for-6 with a double and three RBI during a brief two-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Albuquerque. He is available off the bench tonight and will likely be in the lineup tomorrow for his Bobblehead Night. Nice timing.

Kershaw can remain on the bereavement list for a minimum of three days and a maximum of seven. According to Ken Gurnick of MLB.com, he is still likely to make his next scheduled start Friday against the Giants in San Francisco.
