Hanley Ramirez may have had some reservations about being forced to move over to third base this offseason to welcome Jose Reyes, but so far he has done a better job handling his new position than regaining his batting-championship form at the plate.

Through his first 31 games, Ramirez has committed just one error in 76 chances, posting a .987 fielding percentage that ranks third among third baseman in the majors.

"He's 100 percent better than what I thought,'' manager Ozzie Guillen said Tuesday of Ramirez's play at third.
