Hanley Ramirez (wrist) returned to the Red Sox' starting lineup on Saturday.

Ramirez sat out Friday's game after he was hit by on a pitch on his right wrist during Thursday's contest. He's batting third and starting at first base against Alex Cobb and the Orioles on Saturday.
Apr 14 - 10:20 AM

Hanley Ramirez (wrist) is hoping to be back in the Red Sox' lineup Saturday.

Ramirez is sitting out Friday after leaving Thursday's game following a hit by pitch on his right wrist. He's undergoing treatment but isn't wearing a wrap on the wrist and it sounds like he should be good to go Saturday. Mitch Moreland is at first base Friday.
Apr 13 - 4:17 PM

X-rays on Hanley Ramirez's right wrist came back negative.

He's day-to-day with what the Red Sox are calling a "right wrist contusion." Obviously this could have been a lot worse. Hanley will sit out on Friday but it doesn't sound he'll be facing a long absence. In the meantime, look for Mitch Moreland to fill in at first base.
Apr 12 - 7:55 PM

Hanley Ramirez left Thursday's game against the Yankees after taking a pitch off his right wrist.

Sonny Gray tried to pitch inside to Ramirez in the first inning and caught him on the right wrist. Despite lingering hostility from Wednesday night's melee, Gray's pitch did not appear to be intentional. Ramirez tried to walk it off but was ultimately in too much pain to continue. Mitch Moreland will finish out the game at first base for Boston.
Apr 12 - 7:36 PM

Hanley Ramirez was the hero on Thursday, beating the Rays with a walk-off single in extra innings.

Both of Hanley’s hits came in huge spots as the Red Sox overcame a 2-0 deficit to win in 12 innings. Ramirez plated Boston’s first run of the day with a single to left field in the ninth and came through again with a long drive to right field in the 12th. That scored Jackie Bradley Jr., who opened the frame with a double. The Red Sox have now eight straight extra-inning games dating back to last season.
Apr 5 - 6:37 PM

Hanley Ramirez delivered a two-run double in the top of the 13th to propel the Red Sox to a 4-2 win over the Marlins on Tuesday.

Ramirez also had a single in the game, and in the 11th, with a chance to blow the game open, he hit a screaming liner back up the box that was snared by Odrisamer Despaigne. Ramirez is 7-for-23 with a homer and four RBI in five games. It's exactly the kind of start he needed to take some of the pressure off as he tries to hold off Mitch Moreland at first base.
Apr 3 - 11:08 PM

Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-5 with a two-run homer and a steal Monday against the Marlins.

Ramirez swiped his second base of the young season in the ninth inning tonight. Last year, he was 1-for-4 stealing bases in 133 games. If he continues doing a little running, he could prove to be quite valuable in mixed leagues.
Apr 2 - 10:42 PM

Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-3 with RBI in a win over the Twins on Friday.

He doubled to center field to plate both Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi in the first inning. Ramirez is healthy this year and could be poised for a return to glory if he gets everyday playing time. The signing of J.D. Martinez moves Ramirez from DH to first base and could limit his at-bats, but we don't think Mitch Moreland's presence will put a healthy Hanley on the bench too often.
Mar 16 - 9:50 PM

Hanley Ramirez hit his first spring homer Thursday off the Astros' Collin McHugh.

Ramirez is off to a 2-for-10 start. He's been talking big this spring now that his shoulder is fixed, and the Red Sox seem perfectly willing to give him a chance to be the everyday first baseman over Mitch Moreland. The potential is there for significant early season fantasy value, at least until he gets hurt.
Mar 1 - 4:49 PM

Hanley Ramirez had a double and a run scored in three at-bats Tuesday as the Red Sox beat the Twins 3-2 in Grapefruit League play.

Hanley posted a disappointing .242/.320/.429 batting line in 133 games last season, but new Red Sox manager Alex Cora has anointed him as the club's No. 3 hitter leading into 2018 -- even after the acquisition of J.D. Martinez. Ramirez is going late in drafts this spring and might have some sneaky fantasy value at age 34 if he can find better health and consistency.
Feb 27 - 9:15 PM

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Tuesday that Hanley Ramirez is his No. 3 hitter.

Ramirez will shift from DH to first base following the addition of slugger J.D. Martinez, but Cora still envisions him in the middle of the lineup. We already know that Cora plans on going with Mookie Betts out of the leadoff spot and Andrew Benintendi in the No. 2 spot. Martinez will presumably bat cleanup. It's hard to know which version of Hanley will show up this season, but he's saying that his surgically-repaired shoulder feels good. He couldn't ask for a better situation for a rebound.
Feb 20 - 12:54 PM

Hanley Ramirez said Friday that his surgically-repaired left shoulder is "fantastic" and "ready to go."

Ramirez admitted that his health wouldn't allow him to really throw last season, but he said he's ready for "around 150 ... 158" games at first base this season. He's currently projected as the Red Sox' designated hitter, but that would change if they bring in J.D. Martinez (or possibly someone else). Ramirez also noted that he lost 15 pounds over the winter while following Tom Brady's workout routine.
Feb 16 - 11:08 AM

Hanley Ramirez said Saturday that his shoulder is fully healthy and that he would like to play another 10 seasons in the big leagues.

Ramirez isn't worried about finding playing time in 2018, because he believes that if he hits he'll be in the lineup. The 34-year-old also noted that he has 30 homers and 100 RBI in him still. Ramirez hit .242/.320/.429 with 23 homers and 62 RBI in 2017. He's owed $22.75 million this season and has a $22 million vesting option for 2019 that kicks in if he reaches 497 plate appearances this season.
Jan 20 - 11:53 AM

Max Wildstein of BaseballEssential.com reports that the Red Sox are listening to offers for Hanley Ramirez.

The Red Sox re-signed Mitch Moreland on Monday and are expected to put the full court press on for J.D. Martinez, which could potentially put the squeeze on Ramirez's playing time. However, while we have no doubt Boston would indeed entertain offers for Hanley, it seems highly unlikely they'll find a taker. Ramirez is coming off an injury-plagued 2017 season that saw him bat just .242/.320/.429, he's owed $22.75 million in 2018 and has a $22 million option for 2019 that vests if he reaches 497 plate appearances next season.
