Hanley Ramirez SS/LF BOS 5 hours ago

Ramirez left Friday's game in the sixth inning after getting hit in the left hand by pitch, the Boston Herald reports. Tests on his hand showed no fracture, according to manager John Farrell.

Ramirez was already dealing with a sore left shoulder, so he may need a day or two of rest to get back to full speed.

Ramirez, who left the previous game with a leg injury, started in left field Wednesday night and went 0-for-5. He hasn't had an RBI in 57 at-bats and his last homer came Apr. 29.

Ramirez could still be feeling the effects of the shoulder injury that caused him to miss a few games earlier this month. Things are pretty bad for him right now -- pitchers have intentionally walked David Ortiz three times the past two nights to get to him. That would have been unthinkable in April when he was pounding the ball. But since the calendar flipped and the injury cropped up, pitchers aren't fearing Ramirez.

Ramirez (leg) is in the lineup hitting cleanup Wednesday, the Boston Herald's Scott Lauber reports.

He jammed his leg on a slide Tuesday, but was taken out when the game was almost over, so the Red Sox likely just wanted to get Jackie Bradley's glove in left field with Ramirez ailing slightly. Consider him relatively healthy moving forward.

Ramirez jammed his left leg on a slide late in Tuesday's game, the Boston Herald's Michael Silverman reports.

He was replaced by Jackie Bradley late in Tuesday's game and finished 3-for-5 with two doubles and a run before exiting. Even if the injury was minor the Red Sox would have likely removed him for precautionary reasons as Jackie Bradley offered a defensive upgrade. Consider Ramirez day-to-day until we learn more about the injury.

Ramirez went 4-for-5 with a double in Thursday night's win over the Mariners.

Ramirez, who had a productive April with 10 homers and 22 RBI, has cooled some since then. He hasn't homered or knocked in a run in the past 10 games.

Ramirez (shoulder) is back in the lineup Saturday against the Blue Jays, Gordon Edes of ESPNBoston.com reports.

Manager John Farrell suggested Ramirez is still dealing with some pain, but the left fielder showed in batting practice that he's good enough to play, launching several balls over the wall in dead center. Ramirez will step back in after missing three starts, though it's always possible that his shoulder could require some additional maintenance in the coming days. The Red Sox don't have a day off until May 18.

Ramirez (shoulder) will take batting practice Saturday and will likely avoid a DL stint, Jen McCaffrey of The Republican reports.

Ramirez won't return to the lineup Friday, but at least it appears he'll avoid a stint on the disabled list. It's unclear when he'll play again exactly, but Saturday seems unlikely at this point. Ramirez should be considered day-to-day for now, but there's no clear date for return.

Ramirez (shoulder) isn't in the lineup Friday against the Blue Jays, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

Ramirez continues to battle a shoulder issue, and has now missed the past two games after leaving Monday's game early with a left shoulder sprain. While he won't return to the lineup Friday, he should still be considered day-to-day.

Ramirez (shoulder) could resume taking swings Thursday, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports.

Ramirez is being held out of the lineup Wednesday for a second consecutive game after suffering a left shoulder sprain. There's still no timetable for a return to game action, but he could return over the weekend if he's able to swing without incident Thursday.

Ramirez (shoulder) is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Rays, Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald reports.

The move does not come as much of a surprise, as Ramirez was expected to miss at least a couple of days with a left shoulder sprain, but he expects to return to the lineup later in the week. Allen Craig will get another start in left field in his stead.
