Hanley Ramirez told ESPNLosAngeles.com recently that he's staying out of the ongoing contract negotiations with the Los Angeles Dodgers, leaving that up to his agent, Adam Katz.

“Sincerely, I don’t know what’s going to happen or what’s happening,” Ramirez said. “I want to keep my mind on the game and these are distractions that I don’t want to have. I’m a key piece to help this team daily.”

On Monday, we gained a little more insight into what could be holding up a new deal for the 30-year-old star infielder.
