      Hanley Ramirez: Heads to open market

      Hanley Ramirez cleared waivers and elected free agency Tuesday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.Ramirez was designated for assignment Saturday after Francisco Lindor (calf/ankle) was activated from the injured list, and he went unclaimed on the waiver wire. Given Ramirez's decline at the dish in recent years, it may be difficult for the 35-year-old to find a new home in the big leagues.

      Indians' Hanley Ramirez: Time in Cleveland ends

      The Cleveland Indians designated Hanley Ramirez for assignment Saturday.Cleveland pulled the plug on Ramirez after a spot on the active roster was needed to facilitate star shortstop Francisco Lindor's (calf/ankle) return from the 10-day injured list. After attending camp on a minor-league deal, Ramirez won an Opening Day job as the team's everyday designated hitter, but he managed only a .625 OPS in 57 plate appearances. Assuming he goes unclaimed off waivers, the 35-year-old seems likely to be granted a release from the organization rather than accepting an assignment to Triple-A Columbus. Given his age, lack of defensive value and declining bat, it's possible Ramirez's time in the big leagues could be over.

      Indians' Hanley Ramirez: Sitting out series finale

      Hanley Ramirez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Royals, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports.Ramirez finds himself as the odd man out after the Cleveland Indians called up veteran outfielder Carlos Gonzalez from Triple-A Columbus and inserted him into the lineup in the series finale. With a .179/.304/.359 slash line through 46 plate appearances this season, Ramirez hasn't provided the impact at designated hitter the Indians were counting on. Unless he's able to catch fire at the plate in the near future, Ramirez's spot on the roster could be on shaky ground.

      Indians' Hanley Ramirez: Added to roster, starting at DH

      The Cleveland Indians selected Hanley Ramirez's contract and will deploy him as their designated hitter in Thursday's season opener against the Twins, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. He'll hit fifth in the order.Ramirez should be in store for regular action at DH so long as his performance warrants a spot in the lineup, though he may be at risk of dropping in the batting order once Francisco Lindor (calf/ankle) returns from the injured list. The 35-year-old has a strong overall track record at the big-league level, but he slashed an ugly .254/.313/.395 in 195 plate appearances for Boston in 2018 before the club eventually released him.

      Indians' Hanley Ramirez: Wins roster spot

      Hanley Ramirez has made the Cleveland Indians' Opening Day roster.Ramirez hit .239/.271/.435 in 15 games this spring as a non-roster invitee. His exact role remains undetermined, as the Indians have a number of relatively interchangeable hitters. He should get at least the occasional start at first base or designated hitter, but he's recorded an above-average batting line just once in the last four years, so there's no guarantee he sticks on the roster for long if the results don't improve.

      Indians' Hanley Ramirez: Nearing roster spot

      Manager Terry Francona said Sunday that Hanley Ramirez would be on the Opening Day roster if the Cleveland Indians don't make further roster additions, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.Ramirez joined the Indians as a non-roster invitee in late February and has a .278/.316/.528 slash line with two home runs this spring. Assuming the 35-year-old makes the roster, the Indians would have Ramirez, Carlos Santana and Jake Bauers to cover first base and designated hitter, but playing time could open up if Bauers sees regular time in the outfield.
