Rumor Roundup

Re-Upping Ramirez

Dodgers discussing extension with Hanley Ramirez
General manager Ned Colletti has been relatively quiet so far this offseason. Apart from a one-year, $10 million pact with Dan Haren that fortified the rear of manager Don Mattingly’s rotation, fans waiting for a big splash have not gotten it. For now, it appears, the biggest news is likely to come from within.

As he looks for upgrades from outside the organization, Colletti must also consider extensions for two in-house players whose existing commitments to the Dodgers expire after the 2014 season. Clayton Kershaw, who is entering his third and final year of arbitration eligibility, has received the bulk of the attention, but Hanley Ramirez—who enjoyed a renaissance in 2013—might be the first to secure a new contract.

Ramirez, who turns 30 on December 23, told Dionisio Soldevila of ESPN Deportes that Colletti has already begun negotiations with his agent, Andy Mota. The shortstop has one year left on a six-year, $70 million hitch signed with the Marlins on May 17, 2008, and he is due $16 million in 2014 under the current agreement.
