Dodgers are in the “early stages” of extending Hanley Ramirez

Tim Brown of Yahoo! Sports says the Dodgers are in the “early stages” of contract negotiations with Hanley Ramirez, who hits free agency after the 2014 season.

Ramirez, 30, hit .345/.402/.638 batting line with 20 home runs, 10 stolen bases and 62 runs scored in 86 games last season for Los Angeles. When healthy, he’s insanely valuable. And, given how thin shortstop is around the game these days, he’s going to be pretty expensive too.  But this is the Dodgers we’re talking about here, so they can make it happen.
