Hanley Will Play!

Don't you ever say that Hanley is soft.

As I'm sure you know, the biggest news of the day had to do with the health of Hanley Ramirez.  After getting plunked in the ribs during Game 1 on Friday, he has sit on the bench and had various medical reviews performed.  His latest test included a CT scan yesterday afternoon, and those result have just come in.  Per a @Dodgers tweet:

This news confirms the findings first reported on twitter earlier this morning, with a slight difference.  The break is a hairline fracture rather than a complete break.  Furthermore, as Beto Duran of ESPN notes, Hanley is "not in danger of hurting self any further. It's just a painful thing".  So, Hanley Ramirez could play tonight's game.

Well, after performing various defensive drills on the field before the game and batting practice soon thereafter, we find out that Hanley will play this afternoon.  Per a tweet from Bill Shaikin at the LA Times.

Hanley also says that he owes us.

It's no wonder he has become a fan favorite.

UPDATE:  Take a look at the armor he will be wearing, via a tweet from the @Dodgers.
