Dodgers shortstop Hanley Ramirez is scheduled to undergo surgery Friday on his injured right thumb and is expected to be sidelined for eight weeks.

The Dodgers said Thursday that an MRI indicated that a ligament in Ramirez's thumb was torn.

Ramirez suffered the injury Tuesday night while playing for the Dominican Republic in its victory over Puerto Rico in the World Baseball Classic championship game in San Francisco.
He told reporters in Arizona he doesn't regret playing in the WBC.

"It's something I can't control," Ramirez said. "It could've happened anywhere. It could've happened here. It unfortunately happened in the WBC. It's very disappointing."

Ramirez was at third base when he suffered the injury. The Dodgers moved him to shortstop, his original position, after obtaining him from the Miami Marlins on July 25.
