Hanley Ramirez Designated for Assignment by Red Sox

There is a financial incentive for the Red Sox to make this move. "We talked about all different types of possibilities". "I was about to go for a run, and Alex goes, 'I've got a thought for you about what we're doing, ' and he said, 'This is a move I would like to make'".

Ramirez was better there than in the outfield but as Dombrowski said yesterday, that move didn't suit Ramirez either. Our club is quite deep.

"It was great to be back, a great win for us and it was exciting", he said.

Pedroia didn't care where he was in the lineup.

Where will tropical storm hit?
Tropical storm warnings and watches have been issued for parts of the MS coast all the way to the western Gulf Coast of Florida. Orlando will likely experience heavy winds and rain starting Sunday, which will intensify though Memorial Day .

"I have a lot of trust in Alex, and Alex has a pulse of that situation", said Dombrowski. He hit.163 with three homers and 12 RBIs in May after starting the season with a.330 average, three homers and 17 RBIs. In part, yes. While you wouldn't have expected Ramirez's bat to decline so suddenly, the left-field experiment was an enormous risk, given few players had ever transitioned from infield to outfield at that age.

The Twins could consider platooning Ramirez with Morrison at first base, especially if Joe Mauer is going to be out for an extended period of time.

"I like him where he's at", Cora said.

The three-time All Star represents a better pinch-hitting option than Brock Holt or Blake Swihart and is a career.380 hitter in the postseason. In November 2014, the Red Sox signed him to a four-year, $88 million contract. But what they really want to avoid is paying Ramirez $22 million in 2019. He already had 195 this season, leaving him 302 shy of triggering that provision.

Dumping Ramirez puts a wrap on two of the worst contracts in Red Sox history - or anybody's history.

"It was a bit of a stunner", Yankees manager Aaron Boone. The conversations start going and I have to see, we have to see it. In 431 games with Boston, Ramirez batted.260 (422-for-1,625) with 78 home runs and 255 RBI.

Pedroia, activated off the disabled list Friday after spending the early season rehabbing his surgically repaired left knee, is batting sixth. Ramirez tweeted a farewell to Red Sox fans on Friday afternoon. He was the AL Rookie of the Year in 2007 and Most Valuable Player in 2008.

"We'll get him his at-bats and get him ready", Cora said. "He feels good. He's not having any pain so we think that he'll be fine to go out there but we are going to be careful in that regard". Third baseman Pablo Sandoval was given a $95 million, five-year deal and released last July 19. His agent asked them to trade him last week, and according to NBC Sports Boston, the Red Sox tried but were asking too much in return and couldn't find a partner.
