Hanley Ramirez's forgettable season may be over. The Marlins' three-time All-Star shortstop suffered a setback on the rehab trail with his balky left shoulder Tuesday and it doesn't sound good. He had an MRI Wednesday and the results are coming Thursday, but Joe Capozzi of the Palm Beach Post reports that "indications are [Ramirez] won't be back this year." Capozzi also noted surgery is very much a possibility.

Ramirez entered the season as a 27 year old with expectations of being among the best players in baseball. If fantasy baseball is your thing, you know Ramirez was a consensus top five overall pick due to his power-speed combination. It turns out, Ramirez has to qualify as one of the biggest busts of the season. He entered the season with career triple slash line of .313/.385/.520. This season, it's .243/.333/.379. From 2006-2010, Ramirez averaged 112 runs, 25 homers and 39 steals a season. This season he's sitting at 55, 10 and 20, respectively. The numbers are injury shortened, to be sure, but he's just fallen short across the board in 2011.

With the Marlins moving into a new stadium for 2012, Ramirez needs a huge bounce-back. He's too intregral to the ballclub's success to disappoint.

Report: Ramirez's season in jeopardy

I think he is done this season, quite frankly he is not been very productive this year, now to top it of a reported surgery, it is a fitting end to a bad year. Bounce back is not a term to describe it, hopefully he at least try to play healthy next year is more i want to see next year from him. If not trading block will be a definite solution for this high end player.
