Ramirez building free agent value

6/21/2013

Hanley Ramirez was once among the very best players in the game. He hit for average, power, swiped 30-plus bases and improved his defense at shortstop enough to be passable. He signed a six-year deal with the Marlins back in 2008, but that contract is set to expire after next season. Considering his recent run of injuries -- he missed 70 games in 2011 and has played in just 13 thus far in 2013 -- his long-term future is very much up in the air.
