Hanley Ramirez has resumed taking ground balls at first base in pre-game workouts again.

Ramirez had a setback with his nagging right shoulder issue earlier this month when he started a game at first base in an interleague series, but he's ready to test things out again. However, there's no timetable for when he might play first in a game and the Red Sox now have another right-handed hitting option at the position in Sam Travis, so they won't rush Ramirez.
May 26 - 9:17 AM

Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a two-run double and two runs scored in Sunday's win over the A's.

Ramirez hit a two-run double as part of a five-run ninth inning which helped the Red Sox pull away for an easy 12-3 win. In 35 games played this season, the slugger is slashing .273/.350/.445 with six homers and 20 RBI. He scalded the A's with five hits over his final eight at-bats on Saturday and Sunday, with a home run and a double among that bushel of knocks.
May 21 - 7:50 PM

Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-4 and smacked a solo home run in a loss to the Athletics on Saturday.

He took Sean Manaea deep in the second inning to give his club a brief lead. Ramirez has yet to catch fire this season and has sort of been plodding along. He has a .258 batting average with six homers and 18 RBI in 138 plate appearances. He will have to pick up the pace if he hopes to match the .286 batting average with 30 homers and 111 RBI he put up last year.
May 20 - 8:12 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said during an appearance on MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM that Mitch Moreland will start at first base in St. Louis, pushing Hanley Ramirez to the bench.

Of course, the Red Sox won't have the DH available under National League rules. Ramirez just returned from a sore right trapezius muscle and doesn't appear all that interested in playing first base, so it's not a big surprise. Fantasy owners will need to rely on other options for the next two days.
May 16 - 1:57 PM

Hanley Ramirez (trapezius) went 1-for-4 with an infield single in his return to the starting lineup Sunday against the Rays.

Ramirez missed three straight games with a sore right trapezius muscle. The Red Sox will play their next two games under National League rules in St. Louis, so Ramirez is likely to head back to the bench. Fantasy owners should have a backup plan in place.
May 15 - 8:22 AM

Hanley Ramirez (trapezius) remains out of the Red Sox starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's contest against the Rays.

Ramirez hasn't played since leaving Wednesday's game with the issue. Chris Young is filling in as the designated hitter and is batting fifth against Blake Snell and the Rays on Saturday.
May 13 - 10:09 AM

Hanley Ramirez (trapezius) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

Ramirez hasn't played since being pulled from Wednesday's game with a spasm in his upper right trapezius muscle. It's probably going to keep him from playing first base again anytime soon, but he should be ready to handle designated hitter duties pretty soon. Chris Young is in the DH spot Friday.
May 12 - 3:09 PM

Hanley Ramirez (trapezius) is out of the Red Sox starting lineup on Thursday afternoon

Ramirez was removed from Wednesday night's game against the Brewers with a spasm in his upper right trapezius muscle. He is considered day-to-day. Mitch Moreland will start at first base and bat fifth in the series finale at Miller Park.
May 11 - 9:44 AM

Hanley Ramirez was forced out of Wednesday's game against the Brewers due to a spasm in his right trapezius muscle.

The trapezius muscle is part of the upper back/neck/shoulder. Ramirez has been dealing with right shoulder soreness at times this season and this could be a continuation of that lingering injury. Wednesday marked the first time this season the slugger played the field (first base), but he managed just three innings before being removed from play. Ramirez should be considered day-to-day moving forward and will be reevaluated on Thursday.
May 10 - 10:13 PM

Hanley Ramirez will start at first base on Wednesday night at Milwaukee's Miller Park.

It'll be his first time playing the field this season. Ramirez has batted .262/.350/.437 with five home runs and 16 RBI in 27 games as Boston's new everyday designated hitter.
May 10 - 2:45 PM

Hanley Ramirez is out of the Red Sox starting lineup Tuesday night in Milwaukee.

Hanley hasn't played the field yet this season and there is no DH available to the Red Sox at Miller Park. Mitch Moreland is starting at first base versus the Brewers.
May 9 - 3:50 PM

Hanley Ramirez will play some first base during this week's series in Milwaukee.

Ramirez has been limited to designated hitter duty so far this season due to nagging right shoulder soreness, but he's apparently made enough improvement to play some first base with the DH spot not available in road interleague action. The Red Sox are hopeful that Ramirez will eventually feel well enough to play first base regularly against southpaws.
May 7 - 12:59 PM

Hanley Ramirez launched a pair of solo home runs in Tuesday's win over the Orioles.

Ramirez took Alec Asher deep over the Green Monster in the fourth inning and he took Asher over the Monster again in the sixth. The Red Sox' designated hitter got off to a slow start this season, but he's now gone 11-for-29 with five longballs over his last eight contests.
May 2 - 10:28 PM

Hanley Ramirez clubbed a two-run homer in the first inning on Sunday helping to power the Red Sox to a 6-2 victory over the Cubs.

The Red Sox got to Kyle Hendricks early in this one, with Andrew Benintendi reaching on a single and riding home on Ramirez's blast over the Green Monster. Ramirez also drew a walk in the ballgame, finishing the night 1-for-3 with two RBI. Through the first month of the season he's hitting .253/.314/.405 with three homers and 11 RBI.
