Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday that Hanley Ramirez will serve as the designated hitter against right-handers.
He's confirming what was already expected. This means that Mitch Moreland will see most of the at-bats at first base against right-handers. Ramirez could slide to first base against southpaws, with someone like Chris Young seeing at-bats out of the DH spot. Feb 15 - 12:09 PM

Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski said Monday that Hanley Ramirez "wants to DH a lot."

Which is good, because that's where he'll get the large majority of his starts in 2017. Hanley holds an impressive .331/.381/.634 career slash line as a designated hitter. The role seems to suit him well, and he could be headed for a huge year as the replacement to David Ortiz.

Hanley Ramirez has received permission from the Red Sox to play winter ball.

It's presumably going to happen in his native Dominican Republic, though the involved parties still need to sort out how many games he is actually going to play. Hanley will move into a more DH-heavy role with the Red Sox in 2017 following the signing of Gold Glove first baseman Mitch Moreland, so there's less worry here about fatigue. It might actually do him some good to get at-bats out of the DH spot in the Dominican Winter League for a couple of weeks.

Hanley Ramirez is expected to play in Thursday's game against the Orioles.

Ramirez is sitting out Wednesday's game to rest up a few minor shoulder and foot issues. These are not considered serious, though, and the molten-hot slugger looks like he will be ready to return to action for Boston's series finale in Baltimore. Hanley is slashing .357/.416/.771 with nine homers and 23 RBI in 18 games this month.

Hanley Ramirez hit a three-run, walk-off home run Thursday to cap a five-run comeback in a 7-5 defeat of the Yankees.

Hanley got all of a Dellin Betances 3-1 offering, and he knew it, admiring the moon shot before circling the bases and meeting a mob of teammates at home plate. The homer was his only hit in five at-bats on the night. HanRam has been on fire at the plate lately, hitting five homers in his last eight games to give him 25 homers and 100 RBI overall. It's only the second time in his career the 32-year-old has reached the 100-RBI plateau. It's been quite a comeback after a disappointing 2015 season.
