Hanley had a down year last year, but has made the transition to third base this season, and he is having a good year at the plate thus far. Ramirez, and fellow Dominican player Jose Reyes have the Marlins in the playoff chase in the National League East.
He is from Samana, an awesome Dominican beach town on the east coast of the country.
Carlos Gomez of the Brewers also received consideration for the NL player of the week award. He is from Santiago, Dominican Republic.
