Hanley Ramirez blasted his 19th home run Saturday in a win over the Yankees.

The opposite field missile left his bat at an exit velocity of 107 mph. It's surprising Ramirez didn't get more All-Star consideration. He's on pace for 35 homers this year, two more than his career-high of 33 set back in 2008. The 31-year-old has left the yard four times in his last eight games with seven RBI over that span.

Hanley Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's loss to the Astros.

Ramirez's solo homer in the second inning opened the scoring for the game. He drove in his second run of the contest on a fielder's choice in the fifth inning of a wild contest that saw the teams combine for 28 hits and 20 runs. The outfielder was hit in the left hand on June 24, but after missing a week, he's played in each of the last three games and is now working on an eight-game hitting streak as he looks to add to his 17 homers, 41 RBI and .280/.328/.500 triple-slash.
Jul 3 - 11:56 PM

Hanley Ramirez (hand) will return to the Red Sox' lineup on Wednesday.

Ramirez took batting practice prior to Tuesday's game and didn't have any issues with his bruised left hand. The outfielder has missed the last week of action after being hit in the hand by a line drive.

Hanley Ramirez (hand) is scheduled to take batting practice before Tuesday's game in Toronto.

Hanley won't be in Boston's starting lineup, but he appears to be progressing nicely from his bruised left hand. Rusney Castillo is with the Red Sox in Toronto as insurance, but it doesn't sound like he'll be needed. Hanley should return either Wednesday or Thursday.
Jun 30 - 5:03 PM

Hanley Ramirez (hand) took some swings off a tee Monday.

Ramirez was out of the lineup for a fifth straight game Monday, but X-rays and an MRI came back clean and he's ready to ramp up his swinging. That the Red Sox had him fly to Toronto indicates they're confident the outfielder will be ready to return to the lineup at some point between now and when the series concludes Thursday.
Jun 29 - 10:01 PM

Hanley Ramirez (hand) is hoping to return to the lineup by Thursday.

Tests have confirmed that Ramirez is merely dealing with a bruise on his left hand, but he remains sore and will have to ramp up a swinging progression before being cleared to return to action. Hanley hasn't played since last Wednesday. Alejandro De Aza has been filling in in left field.
Jun 29 - 5:05 PM

Hanley Ramirez (hand) remains out of the Red Sox starting lineup on Monday.

Jun 29 - 3:18 PM

Hanley Ramirez will fly back to Boston to undergo an MRI on his ailing left hand.

Initial X-rays on Ramirez's hand were negative after he left Wednesday game when he was hit by a liner. He remains sore, though, so the Red Sox want to have him looked at again. A decision on whether he might need a trip to the disabled list is expected to come on Monday.

Hanley Ramirez (hand) remains unable to swing a bat.

Despite this fact, Red Sox manager John Farrell maintains that Ramirez's status is a day-to-day situation. The outfielder is missing a second straight game Friday and it's totally up in the air as to whether he might be ready to play sometime over the weekend.

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

Jun 26 - 3:08 PM

Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is not in the Red Sox starting lineup Thursday afternoon against the Orioles.

But he is listed on the lineup card as a reserve, so there will be no disabled list stint. Not yet, anyway. Hanley left Wednesday's game after getting struck on his left wrist by a Xander Bogaerts line drive while running the bases. He had a brace and a wrap on the wrist Thursday in the Red Sox clubhouse. Alejandro De Aza is in left field and callup Jackie Bradley Jr. is in right field in Thursday's series finale versus Baltimore.
Jun 25 - 10:45 AM

Hanley Ramirez left Wednesday's game with a left hand contusion.

He was hit near the hand and wrist area by a Xander Bogaerts line drive while running the bases, and he immediately left the game. A contusion suggests it might be a day-to-day injury, but the team will likely have to run more tests before providing a clearer outlook for his return.
