Hanley Ramirez and Gaby Sanchez expected back

While Hanley Ramirez and Gaby Sanchez have been nursing injuries, both are expected to return to action this weekend.

Manager Fredi Gonzalez said he expected shortstop Hanley Ramirez would be in the lineup and at shortstop for Saturday's game against the Boston Red Sox.

First baseman Gaby Sanchez (bruised knee) is expected to make the trip to Lakeland on Sunday to face the Detroit Tigers.

Not too worried about Gaby, as long as the bruised knee doesn't swell, he should be fine.  As for Hanley, he probably won't do anymore damage to his shoulder by playing, it's just that, this is one long spring training and there isn't any need to rush him back into the lineup if resting would make the shoulder feel better.  And anyway, I have never minded watching Andino field the position at short.
