Ramirez is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers, according to Ryan Hannable of WEEI.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's game, so manager John Farrell decided it was time to give Ramirez his first day off since the All-Star break. Travis Shaw will slide across the diamond and serve as the Red Sox's first baseman in Ramirez's place.

Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a three-run homer and two runs scored in Sunday's 8-7 win over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez has apparently found his power stroke this past week. He hit just eight homers in his first 85 games, but Sunday's blast was his fifth in the last five games.

Ramirez belted a three-run homer in Saturday night's 11-9 loss to Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez's power numbers have been lacking this season -- his .449 slugging percentage is below his career average of .492 -- but he's picked up a bit since the All-Star break, having hit four homers with nine RBI in the last eight games.

Ramirez blasted three homers and drove home six runs Wednesday in an 11-7 win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Although he's had a decent season, Hanley's power had been mostly missing in action until Wednesday, when facing Matt Cain suddenly caused him to unleash his homer stroke. He hadn't hit a home run in close to a month, dating all the way back to June 25, and he hadn't had a multi-hit game since prior to the All-Star break, so this was a huge game for Ramirez and his fantasy owners alike; before this, it would have been hard to blame owners for starting to lose patience with the one-time superstar.

Ramirez (ankle/shin) is back in the lineup Friday against the Yankees, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez fouled a ball off his leg a week ago, which resulted in a bruised shin and two straight absences heading into the break. Fortunately, it seems the time off did Ramirez well as he will return to his normal spots at first base the No. 5 spot in the batting order to face right-hander Michael Pineda. Ramirez has improved his walk rate significantly from a year ago but he's making contact at a career-low rate (.340 BABIP).

Ramirez (ankle) is not in Saturday's lineup against the Rays, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez left Friday's game with a shin contusion after fouling a ball off his leg. He could wind up sitting out Sunday's game as well to give him some extra rest before the All-Star break. He will be replaced by Travis Shaw at first base for Saturday's outing.

Ramirez left Friday's game with a shin contusion after fowling a ball off his leg, the Boston Globe's Alex Speier reports.

EDGE Analysis

This was the second game in a row that Ramirez hit a foul ball off his shin, so he was in obvious pain following the game. It sounds like he is just day-to-day for now, although the Red Sox may take advantage of the All-Star break and give one of their hottest hitters a long stretch to rest up in advance of the second half. Ramirez was replaced by Travis Shaw, who was held out of the lineup to start the game with a foot contusion, and with Brock Holt dealing with a sprained ankle, the Red Sox don't have many healthy options at first base.

Ramirez went 3-for-5 with two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Angels. He has five hits and three doubles in the two games since he missed a game with an oblique injury.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez, whose meager impact at the plate resulted in being dropped in the batting order in late June, has worked his way back up to the five hole. In the last 10 games, he's hit .416 (15-for-36) and slugged .778 with seven extra-base hits and eight RBI since June 22. The surge has improved his OPS to .782, but it's still well below his career norm (.857).
