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.

Red Sox recalled RHP Ryan Cook from Triple-A Pawtucket.

The Red Sox acquired Cook from the A's on August 1. He held a 4.05 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 26/14 K/BB ratio across 33 1/3 innings with his former club. In 9 1/3 innings with Triple-A Pawtucket, he had yet to allow a run. While Cook likely won't be seeing any high-leverage work, he's not the worst you could do for a September call-up.

Red Sox recalled RHP Noe Ramirez from Triple-A Pawtucket.

In three major league appearances covering five innings earlier this season, Ramirez allowed nine runs on seven hits. He held a 2.32 ERA and a 38/18 K/BB ratio over 42 2/3 Triple-A innings prior to hitting the Red Sox expanded roster. He'll try to carry those numbers over and impress with the big club.

Red Sox purchased the contract of C Sandy Leon from Triple-A Pawtucket.

The Red Sox designated Leon for assignment on July 20, but he passed through waivers unclaimed. He hit a paltry .180/.247/.191 in 102 plate appearances with the Sox in earlier cups of coffee. The 26-year-old catcher was hitting better at Triple-A, but not that much better. He doesn't figure to provide much offense at the major league level over the next month.

Ryan Hanigan (calf) went 1-for-4 with a single and a strikeout in his return to the lineup Monday against the Yankees.

Hanigan missed two straight starts over the weekend due to right calf tightness, but he's doing better now. The 35-year-old will continue to share playing time with Blake Swihart as the BoSox play out the string.
Sep 1 - 9:51 AM

Red Sox acquired LHP Luis Ysla from the Giants in exchange for OF Alejandro De Aza and cash considerations.

Ysla, 23, is having a dreadful year with a 6.21 ERA in High-A, but he showed plenty of promise in his first two pro seasons. It's a lottery ticket addition for Boston.
Sep 1 - 12:55 AM

Jean Machi allowed a run in the ninth inning but escaped with his fourth save as the Red Sox won 4-3 over the Yankees on Monday.

Machi gave up a hit and three walks and had the go-ahead run on second base, but he struck out Greg Bird and got Didi Gregorius to fly out to end the game. Machi has had poor results this year but the Red Sox like him as their go-to closer with Koji Uehara on the shelf. With his new team, Machi is 4-for-4 in save opportunities with a 5.68 ERA and a 10/7 K/BB ratio in 12 2/3 innings.
Aug 31 - 11:05 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez held the Yankees to two runs (one earned) in five innings in a win on Monday.

Rodriguez allowed 10 base runners on seven hits and three walks while striking out four. Catcher's interference and a Pablo Sandoval error helped the Yankees score a run in the first, and Didi Gregorius added an RBI single in the fourth. The lefty has shown promise from time to time but has overall been mediocre as he has a 4.25 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP and a 73/30 K/BB ratio over 97 1/3 innings. Rodriguez will take the hill at home against the Phillies next.
Aug 31 - 11:00 PM

David Ortiz hit his 495th career home run, helping the Red Sox eke out a win over the Yankees on Monday.

Ortiz broke a 2-2 tie in the fourth inning, hitting an opposite-field blast over the Green Monster. He also doubled and walked in his four plate appearances. The DH has homered in back-to-back games, giving him 29 on the season with 80 RBI and a .267/.356/.525 triple-slash line.
Aug 31 - 10:57 PM

Dustin Pedroia (hamstring) has been cleared to ramp up his baseball activities.

Pedroia has been coming around slowly but surely and looks to still be in line to return on September 10. The Red Sox' second baseman has been dealing with a right hamstring issue since the end of June.
Aug 31 - 4:22 PM

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.
Aug 31 - 3:19 PM

Red Sox 2B prospect Yoan Moncada cracked a two-run triple in Saturday's win for Low-A Greenville.

He went 0-for-5 in his other at-bats. Moncada has been a lightning rod for the Drive, hitting .331 with seven homers and 25 RBI since July 1. The 20-year-old has swiped 36 bases during that stretch including 23 in the month of August. Boston's top prospect will likely begin next year at High-A Salem.
Aug 30 - 5:54 PM

Wade Miley took a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Mets, giving up four runs over six innings.

Miley held the Mets to one run over five innings, but faltered in the sixth, allowing a two-run double to Juan Uribe and an RBI single to Anthony Recker. The lefty served up nine hits and a walk while striking out six overall on the afternoon. Miley carries a disappointing 4.57 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP and a 121/54 K/BB ratio in 159 2/3 innings. He'll look for better results in a home start versus the Phillies next.
Aug 30 - 4:17 PM

David Ortiz slugged his 28th home run of the season in a losing effort against the Mets on Sunday.

Ortiz gave the Red Sox a temporary 2-1 lead in the sixth inning, drilling a Noah Syndergaard offering out to right field at Citi Field. The blast was the 494th of his 19-year career. The DH, playing first base in a National League park, finished 1-for-4 on the afternoon. On the season, Ortiz is batting .264/.352/.515 with 28 home runs and 79 RBI.
Aug 30 - 4:15 PM

Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo said Sunday that Jean Machi has overtaken Junichi Tazawa as the club's closer.

It comes as no surprise, as Tazawa was pulled from a save opportunity on Friday and then Machi nailed down a save on Saturday. Machi is certainly no cinch in the role given his 5.21 ERA on the season, but obviously he needs to be owned in fantasy leagues while he's being used in the ninth inning.
