The Marlins have recommended that star shortstop Hanley Ramirez undergo surgery, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com writes.

Ramirez will need around 4-8 months recovery from an injury termed "left shoulder instability." He hit the disabled list at the beginning of August after injuring his shoulder on a diving play, and embarked on a rehab assignment before leaving the game Tuesday with a reaggravation. A MRI showed no structural damage in Ramirez's shoulder, but it's still unstable and slipping out of joint.

No date has been set for the surgery, but Ramirez is expected to be back in time for Opening Day, although spring training is questionable.

No doubt Hanley is a head case, but if you ever jostle a shoulder out of joint (separate, dislocate, etc), it is prone to coming out again.  More worriesome is that he is a right handed hitter.  With no stability in the lead shoulder, you can say goodbye to any power.  I separated/dislocated my shoulder 15 years ago (scoring 4 touchdowns for Polk High), and to this day if I sleep on it wrong, it comes out of socket.  I never had surgery because my pro career in any sport ended around high school.  Took all power away from my right side (swing hard, the weight of the swinging bat pulls it out of socket), so much so I began batting left handed...and that's in slo pitch softball.  Can't imagine trying to hit for power with that against a 90 mph slider.  The Fins should trade him while they can still get something for him.  For those who don't like my weekend warrior analogies, look at what happened to Richie Sexson, the right handed slugger, once he lost stability in his left shoulder.  Career over, never hit the same again.  Hanley better start working on his SBs again...

What kind of an injury is "left shoulder instability"?  Is that another name for Head Case?  He's put up very impressive numbers in the past but this year he's clueless?  He's also got some maturity issues and needs to grow up.  Send him to a shrink or ship him to another team.

Also I love the injury "left shoulder instability" where an MRI has revealed no damage. So umm yeah what exactly are they going to operate on that is damaged??? Or is this one of those madeup injuries for players who used to be good, but now sucks?

They should tell him to sit out all of next season and let one of the rookies take his place.
