Red Sox's Hanley Ramirez adds muscle in order to improve durability
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox slugger Hanley Ramirez has bulked up to 240 pounds now that he's made the move from shortstop to left field. The added weight is not only to try and help Ramirez at the plate, but hopefully aid in keeping the oft-injured veteran healthy, per The Boston Globe.

“He’s never been bigger and more muscular,” said Bladimir Marte, who has been Ramirez's personal strength and conditioning coach for three years. “We worked on getting his upper body and shoulders bigger and to work on his core and lower back. He’s had back problems, but he’s gone to see Dr. [Robert] Watkins in Los Angeles last year.

“Our goal, through specific exercises to the back, is to keep his back strong. That will avoid a lot of problems. Right now he feels great. There are obviously different movements he has to make transitioning from the infield to the outfield, but for the most part, the move to the outfield should help him physically.”

Hanley Ramirez on Red Sox: 'I belong here'
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

New Red Sox outfielder Hanley Ramirez took fly balls in left field for a second straight day Friday, spending time both on a practice field and in front of the replica Green Monster in JetBlue Park.

Ramirez was asked several questions Friday about his transition to the outfield after a career spent at shortstop and third base, including whether he would have been willing to make the move for any team other than the Red Sox. "I belong here," Ramirez told the Boston Herald. "I'm happy to be here. I think we're on the same page. I was grinding to be back here, playing in front of the fans that saw me grow up that didn't have a chance to see me playing in the big leagues. Anything it takes to go back to Boston."

Ramirez indicated that this year is the earliest he's reported to camp, saying that his work is "going to pay off." He said that his outfield transition "feels good. It's all about winning. I'm here to work on some of the little things and try to get better every day. Happy to be here early, and I think we're doing a pretty good job. I think the coaching staff, they're here for me and for the other guys."

Ramirez took just two at-bats with the Red Sox in his major-league work in 2005 before being traded to the Marlins. He rejoins the Red Sox after two-and-a-half seasons with the Dodgers. Ramirez hit .283/.369/.448 with 13 home runs, 71 RBI and 14 stolen bases in 449 at-bats in 2014.

Red Sox's Beyeler: Hanley was 'awesome' during first day in OF
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

While it is still a few weeks before Red Sox position players have to officially report for spring training, Hanley Ramirez is already at the team's spring complex in Fort Myers, Fla., working on his transition to the outfield.

"He was awesome," Red Sox first base and outfield coach Arnie Beyeler told WEEI.com by phone. "He was very receptive. He was upbeat and had that great smile on his face. He was great, and I was very impressed by what we did (Thursday) and what I see. He's a good athlete. He's a big, strong guy. To play shortstop in the big leagues he had to be somewhat athletic, so I'm excited about that. I was very impressed by what I saw. He had good footwork. He caught every ball today. He didn't have any problems with anything we did."

Beyeler is glad Ramirez has arrived early because he does have some concerns about an infielder making the move to the outfield.

"Stretching that longer throw, for an infielder going to the outfield you're always concerned about their arm. It's a longer throw and you don't have room for error," Beyeler said. "You don't get that first baseman to make a pick for you or come off the bag. It has to be on the bag or the guy's safe. That's a concern, the accuracy of throwing. 

"Another concern for me is that he's been in the infield and going to the outfield is probably going to be a little boring for him. So that's something we joked about today. Especially on those days when you're 0-for-4 of just going to the outfield. (Shane) Victorino is so good at that because he's always messing with the fans and playing around and he's so relaxed out there, having fun. Those are things you learn over time as an outfielder how you can look around and then, boom, get locked in. There's a lot of dead time out there but then the game's on the line and I have to throw a guy out at second. That's a little different perspective. Those are things he hasn't done before."

Red Sox's Hanley Ramirez confident he can play outfield
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

When Hanley Ramirez makes his spring training debut, he’ll be trying to learn new teammates and a new position.

The Red Sox signed Ramirez in the offseason with the intent of having him play in left field. Ramirez has never played in the outfield during his career, but has been working on outfield mechanics, including tracking balls and hitting the cutoff man. Ramirez believes the switch from the infield to the outfield will be seamless, once he receives enough experience, reports ESPN.com.

"I think if I put in all the work that I need to put to get better it's not going to be that hard," Ramirez said.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Red Sox left fielder Hanley Ramirez, who hasn't played in the outfield during a major-league game, will report to spring training by the second week of February to start working with coach Arnie Beyeler.

“He’s been in the Dominican for a good chunk of the winter and he’s been doing outfield stuff down there,” general manager Ben Cherington said, per The Boston Globe.
