Shortstop Hanley Ramirez, one of the biggest names on the free agent market this offseason, received a $15.3 million qualifying offer from the Dodgers on Monday.
Ramirez, like all other players that received the offer from their respective teams, has until Monday, Nov. 10 to accept or declined the one-year offer.

If Ramirez declines the offer and signs with another team, the Dodgers receive a compensatory 2015 draft pick and his new team forfeits a draft picks.
The 30-year-old is coming off a 2014 campaign in which he hit .283 with 35 doubles, 13 home runs and 71 RBI in 128 games.
The three-time All-Star just completed a six-year, $70 million deal that he signed prior to the 2009 season while with the Marlins.
In 10 major league seasons, Ramirez is a lifetime .300 hitter with 303 doubles, 30 triples, 191 home runs, 654 RBI and 261 stolen bases.
