HANLEY RAMIREZ, 28, infield
Final 2012 stats: .257 batting average, 24 home runs, 92 RBI, 79 runs, 21 stolen bases, .322 on-base and .437 slugging percentages, and 15 errors.
Contract status: Signed for 2013 at $15.5 million, and in 2014 at $16 million.
The good: Offensively, Ramirez pretty much gave the Dodgers what they expected. All his numbers went up a click after his trade from the Marlins to the Dodgers on July 25. Gives the Dodgers another right-handed power bat option to hit between Adrian Gonzalez and Andre Ethier. Did not flash the speed he demonstrated when stealing 51 bases in 2006 and 2007 but still has some zip. Was never a problem in the clubhouse, as some feared.
The bad: His fielding can be a problem. He had six errors at shortstop for the Dodgers in 57 games, and despite his speed, did not cover as much ground as expected. Neither his backhand nor arm were impressive. Dodgers believe there is more there. Offensively, was very good, though still shy of his superstar potential.
