Hanley Ramirez out again Sunday with foot injury


Red Sox outfielder Hanley Ramirez was held out of action on Saturday after fouling a ball off his left foot in Friday’s series opener against the Tigers. And he is out of Boston’s starting lineup again on Sunday.

X-rays taken Saturday morning turned up negative, so this isn’t anything major. But the 31-year-old slugger obviously has a pretty bad bruise.

Ramirez has registered 19 home runs and 53 RBI in 97 games this season, though he hasn’t gone yard since before the All-Star break. That is a stretch of 86 plate appearances without a home run.

Hanley is currently sporting a .302 OBP in 397 total plate appearances for the 49-62 Red Sox.

His career on-base percentage before the start of the 2015 season was .373.

Longtime Angels and Cardinals outfielder Jim Edmonds shared on his Instagram story that he is being tested for coronavirus.

The four-time All-Star, who now works as a broadcaster for Fox Sports Midwest, has not posted an update on the results of his test.

If you want to learn more about COVID-19 or think you might need to be tested, give the CDC’s site about the virus a read. Informing yourself is the most important step. Washing your hands and staying home, if possible, is the best way to protect yourself.
