Not surgery set yet for Hanley

MIAMI — Hanley Ramirez will have one more test before undergoing surgery on his left shoulder.

The 27-year-old spoke with reporters on Monday afternoon, and he noted no date has been set for surgery. Within the next few days, the Marlins shortstop will undergo a CT Scan. Once that is completed, he will have surgery.

The hope is he will be ready for Opening Day. He is holding hope to be ready for the start of Spring Training, but that will be determined after the severity of the surgery is determined.

“I’m going to have another test on my shoulder,” Ramirez said. “I’m going to have the surgery, but we haven’t set the date yet. We’ve got to do that test first.”

Will he be ready for the start of 2012?

“We are at a time right now, after the surgery, I’ve just got to work hard,” Ramirez said. “I’ve done it before. I was ready for the first day of Spring Training. So hopefully, it’s not a surgery to take longer than it was before.”

After the 2007 season, Ramirez had surgery in October and he was back for the start of Spring Training.

People need to support this guy… all this talk of trade and nonsense, imagine if he comes back right? like 09 H2R (WHICH IS ENTIRELY POSSIBLE) that would be better than ANY trade imaginable. The only better possibility would be getting Tulo, Pujols, or Cabby. I have absolute faith that he wishes to return to his elite form and help this team win. The team was 11 games over .500 with him in the lineup this year, when he sucked, so imagine if he comes back right? the numbers speak for themselves. SUPPORT HANLEY. A healthy Hanley with another more matured year or LoMo and Stanton can make our lineup very deadly.
