      Red Sox's Hanley Ramirez: Likely set for limited role in 2018

      Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) will likely be limited to a part-time role this season following the acquisition of J.D. Martinez, Jim Bowden of The Athletic reports.With Martinez expected to take over as the team's primary designated hitter, Ramirez will likely be pushed into a platoon with Mitch Moreland at first base. The 34-year-old could also see occasional starts at DH when Martinez requires a breather, but even with that being the case, his plate appearances should still take a noteworthy hit. Ramirez's exact role, and how much it will be reduced in 2018, should clear up as the season draws closer. He hit just .242/320/.429 with 23 homers in 133 games last season.

      Red Sox's Hanley Ramirez: Limited role in 2018

      Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) might have a part-time role this season, serving as a platoon first baseman and occasional designated hitter, Chad Jennings of the Boston Herald reports.The main factor that could lead to a reduced role is Boston's rumored interest in free agent J.D. Martinez. If he's brought on board, Martinez becomes the middle-of-the-order bat the Boston Red Sox need, while serving as the primary designated hitter. That scenario marginalizes Ramirez's opportunities. Absent a Martinez acquisition, the organization has a reason to limit Ramirez in 2018. A vesting option for 2019, valued at $22 million, kicks in should Ramirez reach a threshold of plate appearances. For that option to vest, he needs to get 497 plate appearances in 2018.

      Red Sox's Hanley Ramirez: Will be option at first base

      Hanley Ramirez will be physically able to play first base in 2018 after undergoing shoulder surgery in October, Jen McCaffrey of MassLive.com reports.This would come into play if the Boston Red Sox signed someone like J.D. Martinez, who would be better suited for DH, but if they sign a true first baseman like Eric Hosmer, Ramirez would get the bulk of his at-bats at DH. More important than where he plays is how he hits, as he is coming off a year where he was a below league average hitter (93 wRC+). Entering his age-34 season, it's risky to buy into a bounce back. He is expected to be ready for the season after undergoing successful surgery on his left shoulder.

      Red Sox's Hanley Ramirez: Expects to be ready for start of 2018

      Hanley Ramirez is expected to be ready for the start of the 2018 season after successfully undergoing surgery on his left shoulder Tuesday, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.This is encouraging news, as it appears Ramirez's surprise shoulder surgery was a minor procedure. Shoulder issues plagued him all season, resulting in a disappointing 2017 campaign that saw him hit an unremarkable .242/.320/.429 with 23 homers in 133 games. The hope is that a fully healthy Ramirez will get back on track in 2018.
