Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has recorded two hits in each of his first three games and has two RBI during that span. He should be a starter in all mixed leagues and could be used in daily fantasy leagues.

|Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez comfortable at 1B?|
Wed, 16 Mar 2016 09:17:33 -0700
Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez scooped a low throw in the spring game Monday, March 14, and he's starting to look more comfortable at first base. "My infielders are comfortable," Ramirez said. "You've got Hanley at first. You don't have to worry about anything."
Fantasy Tip: Hanley disappointed his owners after a fast start in 2015, and shoulder woes likely contributed to a terrible second half. Another new position this year will scare many owners away, but more positional flexibility for fantasy owners is a plus. Still, a 32-year-old slugger with declining plate skills won't be all that attractive and he'll likely slip into the middle rounds on draft day.

|Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez determined to bounce back|
Wed, 17 Feb 2016 12:01:06 -0800
Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez reported to camp early Wednesday, Feb. 17, and he said his weight is "a couple pounds" down from last year. Ramirez plans to work hard at his move to first base this season after failing miserably in left field in 2015. He said he's been working at first base five days a week in Miami for the last five to six weeks. "Everything is in the past now. My whole body, my upper body, my lower body, core, we took care of everything. My shoulder got better. That top hand that I couldn't use last year -- that's stronger. We have a pretty good plan. Everything went into the preparation, and I feel it right now," Ramirez said.
Fantasy Tip: Han-Ram said very similar things last year. He started the season hot but everything spiraled out of control when he tweaked his shoulder. If healthy, he could be a fantasy bargain, though, and he'll gain eligibility at first base. But remember that he's also 32 years old. Risk/reward pick here.

Fantasy Tip: Health has been the biggest hurdle for Ramirez, as he has missed substantial time in four of the past five seasons. He projects to be a polarizing player in 2016 drafts because he still owns excellent upside and did start 2015 with 40 runs, 15 home runs, 37 RBI and a .273/.322/.478 slash line through the first 65 games of the season. He is a worth a lottery ticket stab in the middle rounds of mixed leagues drafts.

|Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez to report to camp early|
Thu, 21 Jan 2016 17:15:49 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Although Ramirez was a huge disappointment during his first year in the American League, he has enough upside to be worth selecting during the middle rounds of mixed fantasy leagues. It's hoped that moving from the outfield to first base will also allow him to remain healthy, after he missed significant playing time in four of the last five seasons.

|Red Sox | Hanley Ramirez buying in|
Fri, 04 Dec 2015 10:34:53 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez lost a lot of value when he lost SS eligibility. He can be an upper echelon grab as a fantasy outfielder, but the signs of decline are starting to appear.

|Red Sox | BOS may move Hanley Ramirez|
Sun, 29 Nov 2015 13:25:45 -0800
Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez is the subject of trade talks, sources indicate. The Seattle Mariners, Baltimore Orioles and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim have been mentioned as possible targets, but the Red Sox would likely have to eat more than half of Ramirez's $68 million salary.
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez hasn't been an outright bust in Boston, but he's been a disappointment. The thinking is a change of scenery might help him, but he'll sink on a lot of draft boards because of past performance his tendency to get hurt.

Fantasy Tip: The move to first base has the potential to help Ramirez stay healthy in 2016, as he has missed significant time in four of the past five seasons. Expect Ramirez to be a polarizing player leading into the season, as while he has huge upside, he has also been a huge disappointment a number of times over the past half decade. With a clean bill of health, Ramirez has the potential to yield a huge return from a middle-round pick this spring.

|Red Sox | Club asks Hanley Ramirez to shed weight|
Thu, 12 Nov 2015 14:33:10 -0800
Boston Red Sox OF Hanley Ramirez was asked by the organization to lose weight to become "a little more athletic," according to 1B David Ortiz. "When it comes down to losing weight there's nothing wrong about that. I can tell you from my own experience, once I decided to take care of myself better and do things better, losing weight and other stuff, my career got longer. Hanley is still young. That's some good advice. That's the only way I can explain it. If you listen to what they have to say right now, his career is going to do nothing but get better because he's an amazing player, an unbelievable athlete and you have to be healthy to be a productive player."
Fantasy Tip: Ramirez has missed significant time in four of the past five seasons, which has made him a near annual fantasy disappointment. While you may be able to use that to your advantage next spring, Ramirez should still be viewed as nothing more than a risky No. 2 outfielder leading into the 2016 season. When healthy, he remains an excellent contributor in the fake game, but staying on the field is an issue. Stay tuned for updates throughout the offseason.

|Red Sox | Rest helping Hanley Ramirez's shoulder|
Mon, 09 Nov 2015 11:29:37 -0800
Fantasy Tip: 2015 was a story of two seasons for Ramirez. Before Wednesday, June 24, Ramirez sat with 41 runs, 15 home runs, 38 RBI and a .283/.330/.482 slash line through 273 plate appearances. It was all downhill after, though, as Ramirez finished with a .556 OPS and just 12 extra-base hits over his final 38 games of the season. He is a high-end contributor when healthy, but injuries have significantly curbed his fantasy returns in four of the past five seasons, and Ramirez enters his age-32 season in 2016. Stay tuned for updates, and view the outfielder as a risky No. 2 outfielder who could disappoint if reached for too early in drafts next spring.
