In looking to replace free agent shortstop Hanley Ramirez the Dodgers are “aggressively pursuing” White Sox shortstop Alexei Ramirez, according to Bob Nightingale of USA Today.

Ramirez had a bounceback year offensively, hitting .273 with 15 homers and a .713 OPS in 158 games and has been one of the most durable players in baseball, but at age 33 his defense has slipped and he’s owed $10 million for 2015 plus a $10 million option or $1 million buyout for 2016.
