      Hanley Ramirez: Not involved in investigation

      Hanley Ramirez is not involved with any federal or state investigation, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.Ramirez was reportedly connected to an incident in which drugs were recovered by police in a traffic-stop search. Ramirez was not present for the incident, which reportedly involved a friend who dropped his name in hopes of avoiding arrest. This contradicts prior reports which held that the driver said the drugs belonged to Ramirez and that the driver FaceTimed him during the stop. Assuming this latest report is accurate, there shouldn't be any legal issues preventing Ramirez from finding a new major-league team.

      Hanley Ramirez: Might be involved in federal, state investigation

      Hanley Ramirez is being "eyed" in connection with a federal and state investigation, Michelle McPhee of ABC News reports. McPhee told 98.5 The Sports Hub on Friday that investigators are determining whether Ramirez was connected to a recent traffic stop -- for which Ramirez was not present -- where drugs were recovered by law enforcement.Though Ramirez, the Red Sox organization and Major League Baseball denied knowledge of any law-enforcement activities surrounding this incident, there have been whispers around Boston media that some negative story on Ramirez has been due to come out. McPhee, who previously was involved in breaking legal news surrounding Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez, told the radio show about reports police stopping a driver tied to a widespread Massachusetts drug ring. When the drugs were found at the traffic stop, the driver allegedly told the police the substances belonged to Ramirez and FaceTimed him during the stop. There'll probably be more to come regarding the veracity of this report, whether Ramirez is actually involved and whether any of this will hinder his ability to find another big-league job.

      Hanley Ramirez: Heads to free agency

      The Red Sox announced the release of Hanley Ramirez on Friday, Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald reports.This was the expected result after Boston designated Ramirez for assignment last week, with no team willing to put a waiver claim on him due to his hefty contract. The 34-year-old can now sign with any team without the burden of his previous salary. Ramirez slashed .254/.313/.395 in 195 plate appearances with Boston this season, and was in the midst of an 0-for-21 skid when he was let go.

      Red Sox's Hanley Ramirez: Slumping, but driving in runs

      Hanley Ramirez went 0-for-4 in Saturday's win over Baltimore and is hitting just .188 in 16 games during the month of May, but he has driven in 12 runs during that stretch.Ramirez hasn't been driving the ball as he did in April, but hitting third in the batting order behind Mookie Betts and Andrew Benintendi has generated a lot of chances to drive in runs. "He showed up early (yesterday) to work on a few things," manager Alex Cora told Jason Mastrodonato of the Boston Herald. "We expect him again to start hitting line drives. One thing with him we have to remind him, if it's .300 with less home runs and a lot of RBI or hitting .200-whatever with (more) home runs, I like the complete hitter better than the home run hitter." That's a reminder the Boston Red Sox have continually given to Ramirez, who sometimes gets pull-happy and tries to clear the Green Monster at Fenway Park.
