There's still more than three weeks left in the Grapefruit League schedule, but so far Hanley Ramirez is showing signs the struggles he had at the plate last season could be behind him. Ramirez, who hit the first Marlins home run at Marlins Park in a win over the University of Miami on Tuesday, homered again Thursday in a 5-4 win over the Mets at Digital Domain Park. His line drive, solo blast to left field to open the fifth inning off Frank Francisco provided the difference in the game. Ramirez, who made his first error at third base (missing a hard-hit but playable grounder by Lucas May that shot past his glove in the fifth inning), also had an RBI single in the first inning and finished 2 for 3 in the game.
