1B,DH - CLE
Hanley Ramirez has been designated for assignment.
This is the corresponding move to the Indians activating Francisco Lindor (ankle, calf) from the IL. Ramirez is hitting just .184 with a .625 OPS this season. This could be it for him as a major league player.
Cleveland Indians DH Hanley Ramirez went 1-for-3 with an RBI double in his team's 4-1 loss to the Tigers on Wednesday.
Ramirez drove in the Tribe's lone run with a double in the sixth inning. The veteran is now hitting .222 with two homers, four runs, and five RBI. He should continue to serve as Cleveland's DH for the foreseeable future.
Cleveland Indians DH Hanley Ramirez was one of the few bright spots in his team's 8-3 loss to the White Sox on Wednesday. Ramirez went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in the game.
Ramirez also struck out twice. The veteran is now hitting .235 with two homers and three RBI on the season. He's slightly interesting in AL-only formats at the moment.
Cleveland Indians DH Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-2 with a solo homer in a 2-1 win over the Twins on Saturday. He also walked twice in the game.
Ramirez's fourth-inning homer gave the Indians their first run of the season and broke a 0-0 tie. The Indians could use more games like this from Ramirez, especially with Francisco Lindor sidelined by an ankle injury.
Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports Hanley Ramirez will be in the Indians' Opening Day lineup on Thursday versus the Twins.
It'll be Ramirez's first MLB game since May 24th of last season. The veteran slugger had to settle for a minor league deal this off-season but he'll have a chance to carve out an everyday role in Cleveland early on. Ramirez will have to get off to a hot start to even be worth rostering in fantasy.
