Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-5 with two doubles and three RBI against the Orioles on Wednesday.
Maybe the rest did his shoulder/biceps some good. Or maybe it was just facing Wade Miley and the lesser arms in the Baltimore bullpen. Ramirez had his first three-hit game since July 7 and his first three-RBI game since July 2. Sep 20 - 10:26 PM

Hanley Ramirez (biceps) will start at DH on Wednesday night against the Orioles.

It'll be the first start for Hanley since last Wednesday, though he did appear as a pinch-hitter on Monday night. He's been working through a biceps issue.
Sep 20 - 2:45 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Hanley Ramirez (biceps) should return to the lineup Wednesday.

Ramirez is out again Tuesday versus the Orioles due to lingering biceps soreness, though he did serve as a pinch-hitter on Monday night, striking out in his first plate appearance since last Wednesday. The 33-year-old slugger owns a disappointing .238/.319/.422 batting line in 124 games this season for Boston.

Hanley Ramirez (biceps) struck out in a pinch-hit appearance Monday versus the Orioles.

It was Ramirez's first game action since last Wednesday, as he's been dealing with biceps soreness. Of course, he's also had nagging soreness in both of his shoulders for most of the year. The hope is that he'll return to the lineup on Tuesday or Wednesday.
Sep 19 - 8:41 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Monday that he expects Hanley Ramirez (biceps) to return to the lineup at some point during the series versus the Orioles.

Ramirez is missing his fifth straight game Monday, but it sounds like he'll be back in there Tuesday and/or Wednesday. He could be limited to designated hitter duty down the stretch in order to protect his left biceps and sore shoulders. Ramirez has played first base only 17 times this season, anyway.
Sep 18 - 5:35 PM

Hanley Ramirez (biceps) hit in a batting cage Sunday and is hoping to return to the lineup early this week in Baltimore.

Ramirez has an injury to his left biceps and has also dealt with nagging soreness in both shoulders off and on all season, but he'll try to gut it out down the stretch. Dustin Pedroia is in the designated hitter spot and Brock Holt is at second base Sunday.
Sep 17 - 11:10 AM

The MRI on the injured biceps of Hanley Ramirez revealed inflammation, but no structural damage.

He's considered day-to-day. It's very encouraging news for the Red Sox who had feared that Ramirez would be sidelined for a considerable amount of time. The 33-year-old is hitting .238/.320/.423 with 22 homers and 55 RBI on the season.
Sep 16 - 10:06 AM

Hanley Ramirez underwent an MRI on his left biceps Friday.

The results aren't in yet, but Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that Ramirez could be sidelined for a while. This is after Farrell said Thursday that Ramirez's chronically sore shoulders were bothering him again. Dustin Pedroia should see a lot of time in the designated hitter spot while Ramirez is out as the Red Sox rest his knee as much as possible. That would free up second base for Eduardo Nunez (knee) when he's ready, but in the meantime Brock Holt will see an uptick in at-bats.
Sep 15 - 5:21 PM

Hanley Ramirez is absent from the Red Sox' lineup again Friday due to soreness in his shoulders.

Ramirez has dealt with soreness in both shoulders off and on for a while now and they flared up on him again recently. Consider him day-to-day. Dustin Pedroia is in the designated hitter spot and Brock Holt is at second base.
Sep 15 - 3:12 PM

Hanley Ramirez is out of the Red Sox lineup on Thursday afternoon against the Athletics.

Dustin Pedroia will take a turn at DH and Brock Holt will play second base in the matinee tilt. Hanley is 0-for-9 over Boston's last two games and slashing just .238/.320/.423 for the year.
Sep 14 - 10:15 AM

Hanley Ramirez had two hits and two RBI -- including the game-winner in the 19th inning -- as the Red Sox outlasted the Blue Jays on Tuesday.

Ramirez plated Boston's first run with a groundout in the bottom of the ninth, and his bloop single scored Mookie Betts in the bottom of the 19th in the walk-off victory. Hanley was the only player on either side to drive in multiple runs, as the two clubs combined for just five tallies in the long, messy offensive struggle.
Sep 6 - 1:26 AM

Hanley Ramirez homered in a second straight game and doubled Wednesday in the win over the Blue Jays.

Ramirez is 5-for-12 with four extra-base hits in three games since being dropped out of the cleanup spot in the Red Sox lineup. He's hit seventh the last three days.
Aug 30 - 10:15 PM

Hanley Ramirez hit his 20th homer Tuesday against the Blue Jays.

Ramirez is 3-for-8 in two games since being dropped to the seventh spot in the order by the Red Sox. There's talk of him losing playing time when Dustin Pedroia comes off the disabled list, but what the Red Sox really want is for him to heat up for a spell.
Aug 29 - 9:59 PM

Hanley Ramirez hit a two-run homer and drew a walk in Monday's late loss to the Indians.

It was just the second home run for Hanley since July 25. He entered play on Monday slashing just .208/.309/.375 in August, but there's reason to expect better production from the 33-year-old designated hitter along the stretch run.
Aug 21 - 10:59 PM

Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Cardinals.

He also drew a walk, reaching base three times on the night. Ramirez has hit just one home run over his last 13 games, but he does have a pair of two-RBI games over his last four times out.
