The Boston Red Sox have officially released Hanley Ramirez.

He’s now available at the prorated league minimum with Boston being on the hook for the remainder of the $22 million salary he’s owed in 2018.

Ramirez hit.330/.400/.474 in April before falling off to a .163/.200/.300 line in May. He was released mostly because the Sox had better options, however, and it’s still possible he has some production left in the tank.

If anyone wants to test that, they can now do it pretty inexpensively.
