Boston Red Sox Talk: Hanley Ramirez WBC Status Unclear At The Moment

Boston Red Sox slugger Hanley Ramirez is scheduled to leave the team on Friday and head to join the Dominican Republic WBC team. But, according to Red Sox manager John Farrell, there is still going to be some run throughs with team physicians before the team lets Hanley leave and join his World Baseball Classic team.

Ramirez has yet to play  first base in spring training because he experienced some stiffness in his right shoulder at the start of Spring Training.  The discomfort has left  his status in the WBC up in the air, with the initial plan for him to share first base duties with Carlos Santana for the DR team.

“It would be safe to say that if no improvements or ramping up of the throwing program the next 24 to 48 hours, additional testing is going to be needed at that point,” Farrell told reporters before the Sox’ game against the Orioles in Sarasota. “As of today, no revelations in any way.”

The manager added, “If his role with Team Dominican is to DH, he’s doing that now. What we need to do is, if in fact he goes, we’ve got to continue to be corresponding with their medical staff as best possible to make sure that work is being done and that there’s some increase at some point of the throwing program. Hanley’s aware of this. In our planning, he’s not solely a DH. So we’ve got to get his throwing program ramped up. We’ve got a month remaining. Right now we don’t feel like there’s anything structural there. If in the coming days that doesn’t start to turn, we’ve got to go through some additional testing.”

When asked Tuesday by WEEI.com if he was planning on going to the WBC, Ramirez said “Yeah, why not?”. For Boston this could get a little interesting, Hanley genuinely wants to play for his home country, which isn’t a bad thing. But if he goes there and the soreness worsens and or causes him to miss time for the Red Sox the relationship between him and the club could go downhill quickly.

If the team doesn’t give the thumbs up there could be trouble brewing in the Red Sox organization.

Red Sox Continue To Be Cryptic On David Price

The Boston Red Sox have been very cryptic on the status of pitcher David Price. Price has been on the DL for quite some time now after initially shrugging the injury off claiming it wasn’t anything serious.

But in the last couple of weeks the Red Sox and John Farrell, in particular, have been very secretive and unsure of his status. The issue is, the opportunity for a rehab start isn’t looking realistic. Price has yet to throw off a mound and with the minor league seasons starting to close in the coming weeks, Price’s season may be done.

Farrell made a comment ahead of Wednesday nights game with the Indians where he claims he is being “realistic”.

I don’t know if I was pessimistic. I think I was just being realistic with that he was currently involved in when you realistically look at the calender and then what the progression is needed to get back to that. I’m not ruling it out, but I think at the same time being realistic.

“Untill he gets on a mound, that’s when we’ll start to get a better idea of connecting to the end date”.

Price remains on the 10-day-dl which he was placed on July 28th with left elbow inflammation. He has been able to throw off of flat ground, but the mound is still an obstacle he has yet to face.

Price has a 3.82 ERA in 11 starts for Boston this season with 66 innings pitched. Right now, it is fair to question why the Boston Red Sox and Price didn’t opt for Tommy John Surgery when this issue first kicked up back in Spring Training.

Pawtucket Red Sox Lose 6-2 To Bisons Despite Good Start By Elias

The Pawtucket Red Sox dropped game 2 of their 4 game series with the Buffalo Bisons on Tuesday night 6-2 at McCoy Stadium. There were 6,502 fans at McCoy Stadium tonight.

Roenis Elias Pitched much better then what his pitching line showed. He gave up 4 runs in 7 innings, but it should have only been 2 run. Elias was also pretty close to doing something that Craig Kimbrel and Rick Porcello have done this season.

The Paw Sox saw all of their offense from a two run home run from Matt Dominguez in the 4th inning. It was a home run that barley got out of the park.
