Infielder Hanley Ramirez said he's working on a contract extension with the Dodgers. Ramirez wouldn't discuss years and salary, but while commemorating Team Dominican Republic's championship in the World Baseball Classic at an event Thursday in Santo Domingo, he told ESPN Deportes that a deal could come this winter. The Dodgers had no comment on the report. Ramirez also said he's still not healed from the hairline rib fracture when he was hit by a pitch in Game 1 of the National League Championship Series. Ramirez, 29, is entering the final year of a six-year, $70 million deal he signed with the Marlins that pays $16 million in 2014. Ramirez has a key dual role for the Dodgers, not only as a clutch middle-of-the-order run producer, but because he can play either shortstop or third base. Ramirez has told the club he would be willing to move back to third base.
