OF assist from Shane Victorino

FORT MYERS — Everybody has a Hanley Ramirez story.The former shortstop turned left fielder is 31 but still a physical specimen and now bigger than ever. Beginning his second tour with the Red Sox, he carries the same expectations as he did when he was a no-doubt-future-MVP who supposedly hit bombs out of the minor league parks around Fort Myers and sent baseballs rolling into busy traffic without breaking a sweat. Everybody knew he was special, that the game would be easy for him.Shane Victorino’s story starts like most of the others.

Keri Puts Dodgers Second Only To Pesky Nats

Here's Grantland's Jonah Keri, ranking the Dodgers second going into the 2015 season: 2. Los Angeles Dodgers Starting with the trade that sent Matt Kemp two hours south on I-5, the Dodgers’ offseason moved in the opposite direction of the Padres’. While the Pads loaded up on big hitters with questionable gloves like Kemp, the Dodgers, who also kissed Hanley Ramirez good-bye, happily unloaded such defenseless mashers. The addition of the veteran pair of Jimmy Rollins and Kendrick should fortify the middle of the diamond, while 22-year-old rookie Joc Pederson enters the season as an...

Ramirez takes left turn

Ramirez takes left turn

FORT MYERS — Hanley Ramirez will likely be the first Red Sox left fielder to hit cleanup since Manny Ramirez in 2008. The Sox have rolled through six Opening Day left fielders since Ramirez was traded away and overall have used more than a dozen players at the position.Ramirez’ offensive potential is sky high (1.040 OPS posted in 2013 was a historic number that put him in a category with Barry Bonds), which is the main reason the ballclub invested $88 million in the 31-year-old.

Morning Fort: Brock Holt ready to prove he can do it all again as Red Sox begin full squad workouts

FORT MYERS, Fla. — No one was more versatile in all of baseball in 2014 than Brock Holt. He started at seven different positions throughout the course of the season. He was so versatile that he became an everyday player. That dynamic has changed entering 2015 with the additions of Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez […]

Craig: This spring 'extra important for me'

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Greetings from the Fort, where Allen Craig reported to the Red Sox camp Sunday morning to find that he indeed has a locker in the clubhouse, even if he doesn’t appear to have a spot in the everyday lineup. “I’m ready to go,” Craig said. “I’m ready to play.” The offseason was pretty rough on Craig. Coming off a forgettable 2014 season in which he battled injuries and hit .215 -- ranking him 144th among the 146 players who qualified for the batting title -- he watched as the Red Sox signed Hanley Ramirez for $88 million and signaled their intention for him...

Ramirez, 'Smurf' Pedroia get reacquainted

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Newly-arrived Dustin Pedroia had just finished speaking with a cluster of reporters in the Red Sox clubhouse Saturday morning when a familiar voice greeted him from the other side of the room. “Hey Smurf," said Hanley Ramirez. “Don’t be short-hopping any throws to me," Pedroia shot back with a smile as he went over to embrace Ramirez, Pedroia’s teammate in Double-A Portland 10 years ago. Pedroia, who had been drafted as a shortstop by the Sox in 2004, was moved to second base to make way for Ramirez.

Competition should be fierce in Red Sox outfield

Competition should be fierce in Red Sox outfield

Red Sox spring training will feature only one true competition. But it’s a doozy.The club has four legitimate candidates — Shane Victorino, Rusney Castillo, Mookie Betts and Hanley Ramirez — for three spots in the outfield, and each has a compelling case to be made to be an everyday player.Health will no doubt be a factor come Opening Day, but assuming the best, this battle is so wide open the only sure thing is that the club’s depth in the outfield is going to be excellent.
