Major League Baseball rumors: Red Sox dumping DH Hanley Ramirez | What it means

The team now has seven days to trade or release Ramirez, who would be paid $15 million if not traded or claimed by another club. But we're about to find out if they're a better one. "There really wasn't much of a reaction at that particular time".
It's even more unusual the Sox have been hitting him at the top of the order right up until Thursday, when he batted second for them, which could signal a disconnect between front office and field level coaching staff. The first baseman had posted just a.590 OPS through his last 32 games and was mired in an 0-for-20 slump. He'd been staying healthy, something he's struggled to do throughout his career, and had racked up a.254/.313/.395 triple slash while playing first base and serving as the designated hitter.
"I felt his role was going to diminish", Cora said.
Ramirez came to Boston with a ready-made reputation as one of the most maddening hitters in the game.
"He's been OK" at first base, said Dombrowski, but "he's not been Mitch Moreland, as far as that is concerned". To get there, he needed only 497 more plate appearances. "So I wanted to split Benny (Andrew Benintendi) and Mitch".
With Holt, Nunez and Swihart, the Sox could, in theory, have three utility players available to them on the bench.
On Thursday, Cora called Red Sox President Dave Dombrowski and said it was time to say goodbye to Ramirez. I was getting ready to go for a run.
"Versatility is very important to me". It's nothing Hanley didn't do.

The Red Sox and the Braves do not meet on an annual basis like they did when interleague play began and it has been a while since they have both been good when they do meet.
Ramirez's contract was for four years and $88 million plus the $22 million vesting option for 2019 (if Ramirez had 1,050 plate appearances over the 2017 and 2018 seasons).
"Yeah, it's been a long time, a lot of work put into to get to this point", he said. The conversations start going and I have to see, we have to see it. "We talked about all different types of possibilities".
It was a bittersweet occasion for Pedroia, who counted Ramirez among his teammates at Double-A Portland in 2005. Ramirez spent 38 of the Red Sox's 50 games hitting third in the lineup and hit second on 12 occasions.
This was no coincidental collision, Fredericks knew exactly what he was doing and a red card should have been given. It came pretty much against the run of play, with Villa now needing to pick up the pieces and stage a comeback.
Truth be told, James is probably also feeling the mental strain of dragging a woeful supporting cast to the finish line. Boston, on the other hand, finished as the two seed in the Eastern Conference without their two best players.
