The Los Angeles Dodgers are one game above .500 and along with a struggling bullpen, they’ve seen several of their players go through hitting slumps. One of the culprits has been Hanley Ramirez, who has looked nothing like the batter he was post All-Star game last season.

Missing only one game this season, Ramirez is hitting .241 with six home runs and 21 RBIs. Though he’s stated his hand is healthy after being hit by a pitch on April 17, the fact of the matter remains the 30-year-old shortstop has not been the same since that point.

Despite his slump, Ramirez remains optimistic that his time, as well as the team’s will come. Similar to a sentiment Dan Haren shared, Ramirez also believes the Dodgers will get hot and all they need to jump start them is one win.
