Could Hanley Ramirez be on the Twins' radar?

Red Sox Designate Hanley Ramirez For Assignment

Red Sox second baseman Dustin Pedroia is back after being sidelined by offseason knee surgery. "We don't think he'd be happy in that type of role". Dombrowski said the move was less about saving on Ramirez's salary next year than it was about improving this year's team. Our club is quite deep. "We're in a situation where we are trying to do everything possible to win".

Pedroia didn't care where he was in the lineup. Though Dombrowski says he was surprised to hear that recommendation from the rookie skipper, and noted that he had been "prepared to go in a different direction", the veteran baseball ops executive elected to cut ties with the highly paid Ramirez. And that's not the flawless role for Hanley Ramirez.

The night before, he hit a massive two-run homer in the seventh inning that almost sank the Yanks in the Bronx until Matt Barnes and Craig Kimbrel blew the save.

Initially playing left field, Ramirez looked awkward, then hurt his shoulder crashing into the wall.

"I'm going to start getting more work at first", said Swihart.

"Now that (Pedroia) is healthy, he's going to be able to drive the ball, so he'll have a lot of traffic in front of him wherever he hits in the lineup", Cora said.

Cora repeatedly alluded to Swihart's versatility when discussing his roster going forward, something that also helps make a case for Brock Holt and Eduardo Nunez to remain in the picture.

Rage 2 Release Date and Gameplay Trailer Revealed
Following the release of Prey past year , Bethesda has announced a new game in yet another series we had believed to be dead. Along the way you'll pilot everything from monster trucks to gyrocopters; if you can see it, you can drive it, apparently.

Ramirez returned to Boston as a free agent in 2015, signed by General Manager Ben Cherington - who was the Red Sox farm director when Ramirez was with the Sea Dogs.

Ramirez has an option on his contract worth $22 million for 2019 that would vest if he reaches 497 plate appearances this season. He already had 195 this season, leaving him 302 shy of triggering that provision.

That placing Ramirez on the bench would also directly affect his vesting option was a mostly unspoken aspect to the decision.

Ramirez tweeted Friday afternoon: "Thank you Red Sox Nation".

"It was a bit of a stunner", Yankees manager Aaron Boone. "With that comes the part of it really not being a spot where we think that he'd handle that other role". To bet that he'd me more valuable to the 2018 team? After winning the 2013 World Series, the Red Sox fell to 71-91 in 2014. Pedroia was 1 for 14 (.071) during a five-game injury rehabilitation assignment at Triple-A Pawtucket.

He batted sixth in his return to the Red Sox. "We felt it was time to play Moreland more".
