Ramirez returned to the lineup Thursday after three days on the bereavement list and went 2-for-3 with an RBI in a 4-3 loss to the Tigers.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez was slotted in at cleanup spot as Boston fielded what looked like a spring training lineup -- no Dustin Pedroia, no David Ortiz, Deven Marrero at second base, Aaron Hill leading off -- and continued a recent hitting surge. After a 17-game stretch in which he hit .169, Ramirez has multiple hits in three of the last four games (7-for-15).

Ramirez is expected to miss the full three days while on the bereavement list, placing him back Thursday against the Tigers, Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Three days is the maximum a player can miss while on the list, and Ramirez will likely require all three due to travel obligations. Expect the first baseman to return to availability Thursday as the Red Sox open a four-game set in Detroit.

Ramirez was placed on the bereavement list following Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

The bereavement list allows for three days off, meaning Ramirez could return as late as Thursday's game against the Tigers. Boston hasn't announced a corresponding move but owners can expect further updates on the veteran first baseman when he's back with the team.

Ramirez belted two three-run homers in Friday night's 9-4 win over the Diamondbacks. He was iffy Friday after sustaining a back injury Thursday, but notified manager John Farrell early that he'd be available.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez had been in an 0-for-16 funk, but has strung together two consecutive multi-hit games Thursday and Friday. He now has eight homers in 86 at-bats in the second half, matching the number of homers he hit in 306 at-bats prior to the All-Star break.

Ramirez (back) is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Diamondbacks, Evan Drellich of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez went 2-for-3 in Thursday's game before exiting with a back injury. He is in the lineup for Friday's contest though, batting fifth and playing first base. Even though he is continuing to play, it would be a good idea to keep an eye on Ramirez.

Ramirez (back) went 2-for-3 with two RBI before leaving Thursday's game against the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez collected his 63rd and 64th RBI on Thursday before being forced to leave with a back injury. The 32-year-old has had health problems throughout his career, causing his production to decrease as his age increases. Despite that, Ramirez has rebounded nicely from a pitiful 2015 season and has hit a respectable .271 with 14 homers.

Ramirez is being sent in for tests on his lower back, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez has endured several bumps and bruises throughout the 2016 season and the latest issue to spring up is with his lower back. The Red Sox will send him in for testing, but it's unclear whether the results will be back before Friday. If Ramirez is held out of Friday's game, Travis Shaw would be the likely candidate to take over at first while Aaron Hill would likely fill in at third.

Ramirez went 0-for-5 and left six men on base in Wednesday night's 9-4 loss to the Yankees.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez is now zero for his last 16 at-bats, his season average dropping to .268, it's lowest point since June 24. His slumping bat meant the Yankees could pitch around David Ortiz, who walked three times Wednesday. He's shown some pop since the All-Star break -- six homers in 79 at-bats -- but the first baseman is hitting just .190/.247/.430 in the second half.

Ramirez (wrist) is in the lineup Tuesday against the Yankees, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Fortunately Ramirez's wrist injury was minor, as he returns to his spot at first base for Tuesday's contest. He'll be hitting cleanup against the right-handed Luis Severino.
