Ramirez (knee) is expected to return to the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Twins, Michael Silverman of the Boston Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Ramirez was held out for a third straight contest Wednesday, he was able to work out at first base. Barring any setbacks, he should be ready to go for Thursday's series finale. Sam Travis is serving as the designated hitter in his stead Wednesday.

Manager John Farrell said that Ramirez (knee) would remain out of the lineup Wednesday against the Twins, Ryan Hannable of WEEI.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez will go through a workout prior to the game, but he'll be on the bench for a third consecutive contest while he continues to recover from a sore left knee. Though the Red Sox haven't unveiled their starting nine for Wednesday's contest, it's expected that Chris Young will enter the lineup in Ramirez's stead with a left-hander (Adalberto Mejia) on the mound for the Twins.

Ramirez was scratched from Monday's lineup because he received medical treatment on his left knee, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez was hit in the knee by a pitch during his first at-bat Sunday, but remained in the game to finish 1-for-3 on the afternoon. It appears some issue popped up today that required the trainers to take a look, but the lineup scratch seems to be precautionary. Consider him day-to-day going forward.

Ramirez was scratched from Monday's starting lineup due for an undisclosed reason.

EDGE Analysis

It's unclear why Ramirez is heading to the bench, as he was slated to DH and bat sixth for the series opener against the Twins. The veteran slugger has dealt with recurring shoulder and neck pains this season, his 13th in the league. Chris Young will take his spot in the lineup.

Ramirez is batting fifth and slotted as the designated hitter for Friday's game against the Angels, Tim Britton of The Providence Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez missed Boston's game Wednesday with a recurring episode of shoulder soreness, but appears to be fine after a couple days of rest. The veteran will look to get back on track after beginning the month of June with a .197 average from the plate.

Ramirez is receiving a rest day Wednesday due to shoulder soreness, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appears the shoulder injury which forced Ramirez to sit out three games earlier this season is still causing problems. The power-hitting veteran has already missed time with trapezius and neck injuries this year, factors which manager John Farrell have contributed to his struggles at the plate. Boston has an off day Thursday, so Ramirez will have a chance to get healthy in time for this weekend's series against the Angels.

Ramirez is not in the starting lineup Wednesday afternoon against the Royals, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

It appears to be a routine day off for Ramirez after he started each of the past three games since returning from a neck injury. The 33-year-old has gone 3-for-12 in those contests, lowering his monthly batting average to a dismal .200. He'll be aiming to turn things around as the Red Sox return home this weekend for a series with the Angels. Chris Young starts at DH in his stead.

Ramirez (neck) is back in the lineup as the designated hitter Sunday against Houston, Rob Bradford of WEEI reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez was dealing with a pinching sensation in his neck that kept him out Friday and Saturday. While it's a good sign that he's back in the lineup after just two days, it wouldn't be surprising if the 33-year-old Ramirez continued to deal with this or other minor ailments as the season continues.

Ramirez (neck) is not in the lineup Saturday against the Astros, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

EDGE Analysis

Ramirez will now miss his second straight game with a neck issue that cropped up before Friday's series opener with the Astros. The severity of the issue remains unclear, so Ramirez should continue to be considered day-to-day until the Red Sox provide more information regarding his status. Chris Young will again start in his place as the designated hitter.
