Hanley Ramirez went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored in Tuesday's win over the Rangers.

Ramirez oddly had just one double on the year coming into the game. He had to make an early exit after jamming his left leg, but it's considered a minor injury. The shortstop is batting .276/.322/.522 overall this season.

Hanley Ramirez left Tuesday's game against the Rangers after jamming his left leg.

It sounds like he was removed for precautionary reasons. Consider Ramirez day-to-day for the time being. He went 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run scored before exiting Tuesday.

Hanley Ramirez went 4-for-5 with a double in Thursday's win against the Mariners.

Han-Ram has gone 6-for-9 in the past 48 hours, raising his batting average from .252 to .284. He's enjoying his first campaign in Boston, slashing .284/.336/.552. Ramirez's 10 homers rank third in the American League, and that slugging percentage checks in at No. 10.

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) has returned to the Red Sox starting lineup on Saturday.

Ramirez was blasting bombs to center field during batting practice which was enough to convince manager John Farrell that he was ready to return on Saturday. He'll bat cleanup against Drew Hutchison and the Blue Jays.
May 9 - 12:14 PM

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is taking batting practice on the field on Saturday.

If all goes well, he'll be cleared to play on Saturday. While he's still in pain, Red Sox manager John Farrell said he's good enough to play as long as he's able to hit.
May 9 - 11:22 AM

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) took some swings on Friday and could take batting practice on Saturday.

Red Sox manager John Farrell reiterated that a trip to the disabled list for Ramirez is unlikely. Hanley, of course, banged his left shoulder against a side all during Monday's game, but he's managed to avoid a serious injury. It's possible he could return to play sometime over the weekend.
May 8 - 5:46 PM

Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is expected to begin taking dry swings on Thursday.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported Wednesday morning that Hanley Ramirez "is said to be feeling better" and could return to the Red Sox starting lineup in "a couple days," but there's no real timetable yet. Hanley suffered a left shoulder injury Monday when he slammed into the left-field wall at Fenway Park. He should avoid the disabled list, but the slugger might not return to games until early next week. Allen Craig is in left field on Wednesday night.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) "is said to be feeling better" and hopes to return to the lineup "in a couple days."

Ramirez avoided a serious left shoulder injury when he slammed into a side wall on Monday and has made nice progress since then. The Red Sox will obviously be careful with him, but it sounds like there's a chance he could return to action before the end of the week. Ramirez is batting .283/.340/.609 with 10 home runs this season.
May 6 - 11:09 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated Tuesday that the team might give Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) a week to improve before deciding whether to place him on the disabled list.

"You know, if you look back to what we’ve done with other situations where it’s not been a DL, you get to that midpoint, that seventh day, hopefully we would have much more clear information before the seven days arrives," Farrell said. "That’s usually been our marker when to put a guy on the DL or not." Ramirez had increased range of motion with his left shoulder on Tuesday, and an MRI showed no structural damage. Still, he's undoubtedly sore and the Red Sox might wind up shutting him down for a couple weeks.
May 6 - 9:17 AM

An MRI came up clean on Hanley Ramirez's shoulder.

Ramirez was lifted from Monday's game against the Rays after banging his left shoulder against the left field wall at Fenway Park while trying to make a catch. He showed improved range of motion on Tuesday and is hoping to avoid the disabled list, but he'll be out for at least a handful of games. The 31-year-old slugger had racked up 10 home runs and 22 RBI through just 92 at-bats.
May 5 - 4:35 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said after Monday's game that Hanley Ramirez's left shoulder injury is not a "clear-cut DL" situation.

Farrell referred to Ramirez, who has been diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain following a collision with the side wall, as day-to-day. It's certainly possible that Hanley could still wind up going on the disabled list, but Farrell's words are encouraging. Ramirez has had surgery on the shoulder twice before.
May 4 - 10:43 PM

Hanley Ramirez has been diagnosed with a left shoulder sprain.

The Red Sox aren't providing anything more at the moment, but they should have another update on Ramirez's status after Monday's game. Hanley was injured when he crashed into the side wall while trying to chase down a flyball. It seems likely that he'll require a trip to the disabled list, but it's too soon to speculate about the seriousness of the ailment at the moment.
May 4 - 8:15 PM

Hanley Ramirez left Monday's game versus the Rays in the first inning with an apparent left arm/shoulder injury.

Ramirez crashed into the side wall while trying to chase down a flyball. He immediately clutched his left arm after banging his shoulder pretty hard. Worth noting is that Ramirez has had his left shoulder surgically-repaired twice before. It certainly looked like something that could keep the slugger out for a while, but we should know more later Monday. Ramirez is off to a .283/.340/.609 start this season and trails only Nelson Cruz with his 10 homers.
May 4 - 7:18 PM

Hanley Ramirez's 10th homer was a two-run shot off R.A. Dickey on Wednesday night.

10 homers in April is very impressive, but even more so this year, with the season not starting until April 7. Ramirez's homers have come in 82 at-bats. Last year, he hit a total of 13 homers in 449 at-bats for the Dodgers.
