Hanley Ramirez Newsbeat

Here’s the latest on Hanley Ramirez’s future in baseball

Hanley Ramirez isn’t in the World Series with the Red Sox, but there was baseball news about on Friday anyway.

According to baseball reporter Jon Heyman, Ramirez – who played in Boston in multiple stints – is working out in the Dominican Republic, and remains intent on a comeback in 2019.

The 34-year-old slugger played 44 games with the Red Sox in 2018, hitting .254 with six home runs.

So, what chance do we think he’ll have with this?

Ramirez not under federal investigation; friend dropped his name hoping to avoid arrest

A friend of former Red Sox first baseman Hanley Ramirez dropped his name in an effort to avoid arrest while transporting fentanyl from New York to Massachusetts in April, then immediately admitted the player had no connection to the drugs, according to documents filed in US District Court in Boston.

Ramirez is not under federal investigation and has not been linked to any drug ring, according to several people with direct knowledge of the case. The 34-year-old has been a free agent since the Red Sox released him on June 1.

Report: Cops Looking Into Hanley Ramirez’s Possible Connection To Fentanyl Trafficking Ring

ABC investigative journalist Michele McPhee says authorities are looking into Hanley Ramirez’s possible relationship to a large fentanyl distribution case in Massachusetts.

McPhee, who broke the news of Aaron Hernandez’s murder charges in 2013, told WBZ-FM Friday afternoon that during a car stop in which police found a “significant amount of drugs,” the suspect claimed an item found in the vehicle belonged to Ramirez—and then proved by it FaceTiming the three-time All-Star in front of cops. That car stop, according to McPhee, “coordinated with the timing of his release from the Red Sox.”

Red Sox to part ways with Hanley Ramirez

According to a major league source, the Red Sox informed Ramirez Friday morning that they will designate him for assignment in order to open a spot on the major league roster for Dustin Pedroia, who is returning from the disabled list after his rehab from offseason knee surgery.

The Red Sox are responsible for more than $15 million remaining on Ramirez’s salary through the duration of this season. They will have seven days to trade or release him.

The decision to part ways with the 34-year-old Ramirez may avoid a potentially awkward situation related to his $22 million vesting option for 2019. With a total of 497 plate appearances this year, Ramirez would have been guaranteed another $22 million next season. He’d already accumulated 195, putting him on pace to blow past the required number to secure his salary for next season.

Seems like his recent slump is an excuse to get out of the contract.
