Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Angels.
Ramirez gave the Red Sox a temporary 2-1 advantage with his solo homer off Parker Bridwell in the sixth, but Mike Trout came right back at him in the bottom of the frame with a solo shot of his own to even up the score. That dinger by Ramirez was the only extra-base hit that the Red Sox picked up in the loss. Through 84 games played, the slugger is the owner of a .256/.341/.449 triple-slash with 16 homers and 39 RBI. He has gone deep in three of his last 10 games. We saw a big second-half push from Ramirez last season and this could certainly be in the cards during the current campaign as we enter the dog days of summer. Jul 23 - 6:02 PM

Hanley Ramirez delivered a walkoff homer in the 15th as the Red Sox edged the Blue Jays 5-4 on Tuesday.

Another marathon game for Boston, which played 16 innings Saturday before taking on the Yankees in a doubleheader the next day. Ramirez also had a double and a walk in the contest tonight. The homer was his sixth in the last 20 games and 15th overall.

Hanley Ramirez is not in the Red Sox' lineup for the first game of Sunday's doubleheader against the Yankees.

Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer, a walk (intentional), and a run scored Friday against the Yankees.

This has been an underwhelming year for Ramirez on the whole, but he’s hitting .372 (16-for-43) with three homers and six RBI this month. He’s dealt with a nagging shoulder injury and a recent knee issue, but he’s capable of big things if he feels better down the stretch.

Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-4 with a home run in a win over the Rays on Friday.

The homer was a bit of an afterthought -- a solo shot in the ninth inning of a four-run game -- but it all looks the same in the box score. The homer was Hanley's 13th of the year, giving him 34 RBI and 38 runs scored. As predicted, the 33-year-old has warmed up with the weather -- after seeing his average dip down to .239 in mid-June, Ramirez is now hitting .260/.349/.449 through Friday's game.
Jul 7 - 11:02 PM

Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-5 and clubbed his 12th home run of the season as the Red Sox routed the Blue Jays on Sunday.

Ramirez got the Red Sox on the board with an RBI single in the first inning then put an exclamation mark on the victory with a two-run blast in the seventh. He has been heating up at the plate in recent days and is now slashing .259/.353/.449 with 12 bombs and 33 RBI for the year.
Jul 2 - 5:05 PM

Hanley Ramirez hit his 11th home run and scored two runs in Thursday's win over the Twins.

Hanley showed some bygone speed in the fifth inning, hustling around from first base on a double off the Green Monster to score a run, and he showed some signature power with a solo shot to dead center field in the sixth. He's got extra-base hits in three of his last four games, including a pair of homers. He's still hitting just .242/.344/.419 but says he warms up when the weather does, a trait fantasy owners are hoping rings true.

Hanley Ramirez (knee) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup on Thursday night.

He's at DH and batting fifth versus Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson. Hanley missed a handful of games with a sore left knee.
Jun 29 - 3:16 PM

Hanley Ramirez (knee) remained out of the Red Sox' lineup Wednesday.

He's missed three games now with a sore left knee. Sam Travis is filling in at designated hitter.
Jun 28 - 3:08 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell on Tuesday wouldn't rule out using others in the designated hitter spot even after Hanley Ramirez (knee) is able to play.

Farrell noted that he didn't want to "completely turn away from what Hanley did last year," adding that he thinks he's "still a key member in our lineup." However, Farrell noted Ramirez's struggles this season against lefties (.143/.333/.229), so at the very least it sounds like we could see some others get a shot versus southpaws. Sam Travis would seem to be an obvious candidate for extra at-bats.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Hanley and the Red Sox right-handed bats are in a great spot against Hector Santiago, who has been fortunate to allow just 8 HRs to RHs so far. Santiago owns a lowly 24.6 GB% against RHs on the road, with a 7.7 HR-FB% that is surely to rise if his batted ball profile is maintained. Expect Santiago's .226 BABIP vs. RH bats to jump in the near future.

Hanley Ramirez (knee) is out of the starting lineup again on Tuesday.

Ramirez has now missed back-to-back starts since he was hit in the left knee by a pitch during Sunday's game. Chris Young will cover DH duties with lefty Hector Santiago on the hill for Minnesota.
Jun 27 - 3:37 PM

Hanley Ramirez is day-to-day with a sore left knee.

Ramirez was hit by a pitch Sunday and that's the reason he was scratched from Monday's lineup. He should be back in there in a day or two.
Jun 26 - 4:42 PM

There's no word yet on the reason for the scratch, but Ramirez has had ongoing shoulder issues. Chris Young has replaced him in the lineup.
Jun 26 - 4:15 PM

Hanley Ramirez slugged a two-run homer Friday against the Angels.

Ramirez took Alex Meyer deep in the fourth inning for his 10th home run of the season. It was also the 250th home run of his career. The 33-year-old has dealt with a nagging shoulder injury for most of the season, which provides context to his disappointing .240/.340/.406 batting line.
Jun 23 - 11:13 PM

Hanley Ramirez flied out as a pinch-hitter after being held out of Wednesday's starting lineup against the Royals.

Ramirez, who has been bothered by right shoulder problems all year long, is expected to be back in the lineup on Friday.
