Hanley Ramirez won't play the outfield again this season.

Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo made that announcement Tuesday. It's a non-issue right now with Hanley still sidelined by a sore right shoulder, but Lovullo just wanted to lay out that he's committed to Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo as Boston's starting outfield. Hanley could get some starts at first base down the stretch. That's where he'll open the 2016 season.

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is out of the starting lineup again Tuesday against the Yankees.

Ramirez has now missed five straight starts due to a sore right shoulder. The Red Sox don't need to place him on the disabled list at this point in this season, but it's unclear when he'll be ready to play again. It's a tricky spot for fantasy owners.

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is out of the Red Sox lineup again on Monday night against the Yankees.

Ramirez missed Boston's entire weekend series against the Mets with fatigue in his right shoulder. He's been bothered by several injuries throughout 2015 but has yet to spend a day on the disabled list. It's been a source of frustration for fantasy owners, and it's not clear how long this current absence is going to last.

It's yet another new ailment for Ramirez, who has somehow managed to avoid the disabled list this season despite a host of different maladies. Jackie Bradley took his spot in left field.

Hanley Ramirez was scratched from the Red Sox' lineup Friday.

It's unclear what the reasoning is for the scratch, but Ramirez has had a foot issue recently. The Red Sox should have more on his status shortstop. Jackie Bradley took his spot in left field.
Aug 28 - 4:58 PM

Hanley Ramirez acknowledged to reporters Tuesday that he is moving to first base next year.

The first directive from new Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski, perhaps? Hanley was spotted taking grounders and making throws on Tuesday afternoon in Chicago and said after the workout that he could begin seeing starts at first base down the stretch this season. "I'm looking forward to it," said Hanley, who has been a disaster in left field. Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo make up the outfield of the future in Boston.

Hanley Ramirez took grounders and made throws at first base on Tuesday afternoon.

Hanley has been a huge disappointment defensively in his first year as an everyday outfielder. An eventual move to first base makes sense for the former shortstop with Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr., and Rusney Castillo lined up as Boston's outfield of the future. Ramirez is under contract with the Red Sox through 2018.
Aug 25 - 4:29 PM

Hanley Ramirez is not in the Red Sox' lineup Sunday.

It's a routine day off. Jackie Bradley is in left field while Ramirez rests.
Aug 23 - 10:30 AM

Hanley Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a double in Saturday's loss to the Royals.

The double was just Ramirez's 11th of the season. He's been one of the worst regular starters since the middle of July, hitting just .191/.214/.234 in 98 post-All-Star at-bats. To be fair, he is dealing with a foot injury this month, but the numbers he's posted for the season (.254/.294/.433 with 19 homers, 53 RBI and six steals) simply haven't been what the Red Sox paid for in the off-season.
Aug 22 - 11:13 PM

Hanley Ramirez is not in the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

Ramirez returned from his foot injury to play the last two games, but he's back on the bench in this one. It appears the Red Sox are just being careful with him. Alejandro De Aza is in left field.
Aug 19 - 3:47 PM

Hanley Ramirez (foot) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup on Monday night against the Indians.

A day sooner than expected. Ramirez felt good in a pregame workout Monday afternoon and will return to left field after missing over a week with a bruised left foot. He is batting .262/.302/.446 with 19 home runs and 53 RBI in 97 games this season for the Red Sox.
Aug 17 - 3:34 PM

Hanley Ramirez (foot) won't return to the Red Sox' lineup until at least Tuesday.

Ramirez hasn't played since fouling a ball off his left foot back on August 7. He's continuing to test out the foot with some workouts but evidently isn't feeling well enough to give it a go in a game just yet. Jackie Bradley has been filling in in left field.
