Slimmed-Down Hanley Will Play 1B In DR Winter Ball

Slimmed-Down Hanley
UPDATE: Ooops! No Winter Ball For Hanley!
An already much fitter Hanley Ramirez will head to the Dominican Republic this winter to play first base. The soon-to-be 32-year old has been told he will play first base for The 2016 Carmine Hose—and in anticipation of that—needed to lose "15-20 pounds". Having already handled the weight part, he will now try to hone his old infield skills at a new position. The decision to move Ramirez to first is certainly understandable—but it's also fraught with danger. Despite the common perception that first is an "easy" position, it is a critical part of a solid defense. Hold your breath, Nation!
