Red Sox Designate Hanley Ramirez For Assignment

The Boston Red Sox designated Ramirez for assignment on Friday and the Twins were among the teams that former big-league general manager Jim Bowden threw out as a possible landing spot for the veteran first baseman and designed hitter.

Ramirez is hitting.254 this year with 6 home runs and 29 RBI. Ramirez is in the final season of a four-year, $88 million contract.

An All-Star with the Florida Marlins from 2008-10, Ramirez batted.260 with 78 homers and 255 RBIs during his time with the Red Sox.

The Boston Red Sox are parting ways with slugger Hanley Ramirez, team president Dave Dombrowski said. Cora wanted to play Mitch Moreland more at first base going forward, and the Red Sox didn't think Ramirez would be effective as a bench player.

Ramirez got off to a strong start hitting.330/.400/.474 with three homers and 17 RBIs through the end of April but is batting.163/.200/.300 with three homers and 12 RBIs.

If the 34-year-old reached 497 plate appearances in 2018, he would collect a guaranteed $22 million in 2019. The "Laser Show" made his return to the lineup Sunday against the Atlanta Braves, and received a massive ovation from the Fenway Park crowd before his first at-bat, which came with the bases loaded. Additionally, Ramirez is an expensive line to cut, with the Red Sox responsible for what remains on his $22 million salary.

Apparently having the best record and team batting average isn't enough for the Boston Red Sox. Boston also owes Sandoval $18 million for 2019.

The situation is an odd turn in a season in which Ramirez began as a force in the middle of the AL East-leading Red Sox's lineup.
