Red Sox to activate Dustin Pedroia from disabled list

On Friday morning, Alex Cora ripped a page from Brooks' playbook. He is still owed over $15 million for the remainder of his deal which the Red Sox are still responsible to pay. It's foolish to think otherwise. "Wish him the best".

In his four seasons with Boston since 2014, Hanley hit.260 with 78 homers, 71 doubles and 255 runs batted in.

It was Cora that moved to jettison him.

"We were prepared to maybe go in a different direction with our move".

"Yeah, it's been a long time, a lot of work put into to get to this point, so yeah, I'll be a little nervous", Pedroia said before the game.

"The last couple of weeks I knew something had to happen", said Swihart, who was out of minor league options. "For how good of a player he is, it was going to be hard. Versatility-wise, we feel very comfortable with where we're at right now". "I don't think Hanley is a person that handles sitting on the bench well'". Eduardo Nunez and Brock Holt are more likely options if they aren't in the field, but Swihart is moving up the depth chart with Ramirez gone. That's certainly a valuable piece to have on the roster.

Dombrowski said he and Cora talk daily about possible moves.

By designating the 34-year-old Ramirez for assignment, the Red Sox clear the way for Pedroia to make his 2018 debut. Platoon, pinch-hit late in the game ... that's not a good role for Hanley Ramirez. When motivated, he could be lethal at the plate. Pedroia has won four Rawlings Gold Glove Awards (2008, '11, '13-14), the most ever for a Red Sox infielder.

The ability has always been there.

In 2016, Ramirez hit.286/.361/.505 with 30 homers and 111 RBI in 147 games to help Boston win the American League East. His.708 OPS this season is the lowest of his career.

"We felt we gave him all the chances".

"He's saving his hits for Fenway", Cora joked. Every baseball player goes through a slump but it takes time to get out of it. In cutting him altogether, the Red Sox dodged a storm that was bound to come. Ramirez also held a $22 million vesting option for 2019 should he reach 497 plate appearances, a number he would have approached toward the end of August at his current pace.

Dombrowski and Cora informed Ramirez of the decision in Cora's office following the return trip from a three-game series at Tampa Bay.

The most telling moment yesterday at Fenway may have come when Cora was asked if he was anxious that Ramirez's departure would hurt clubhouse chemistry.
