Hanley Ramirez feels 'a release' since offseason shoulder surgery: 'I was going to be able to do whatever I wanted'

Baltimore Orioles vs. Boston Red Sox, 4-15-2018 - Prediction & Preview

The good one hits for power, fields his position, plays every day, and refuses to take himself seriously. Bad Hanley, for what it's worth, doesn't take himself seriously, either.

The Baltimore Orioles will be taking on their AL East nemesis Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.

Ramirez missed the series-opening 7-3 win with a bruised right wrist after being hit by a pitch in Thursday's game against the New York Yankees. He certainly did his part in Saturday's 10-3 victory over the Orioles. "He was driving the ball all over the place". That's nothing I'm going to worry about. He's not going to lie to me, he understands that we need him healthy. "I was happy he was in the lineup and he contributed".

Dylan Bundy will make his fourth start of the season, still seeking his first win.

Ramirez and Benintendi tied for the team lead with three RBIs each on the day.

Among his achievements is a walk-off single to win the home opener in extra innings against the Rays. The menacing 6-foot-6 left-hander has been almost flawless through three starts, allowing two runs in 17 innings, giving him a stifling 1.06 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP. Cora had named Ramirez his No. 3 hitter early in spring training, which raised eyebrows, but in short order, Ramirez has proven indispensable.

"He's doing OK, day-to-day", Cora said before the game.

"I just heard it for the first time". Boston has covered the spread four times in its last seven games and the total went over in four of those seven. "It was exciting to see him out there today". "When he's locked in and when he's healthy a he's very unsafe". He's only going to get better. "This is the best team in the world, hitting right now, and you're never going to get ready for that". Sometimes we get caught up in the protection part of it, but obviously when J.D.'s swinging the bat, that's a good spot. "I called (Ramirez Friday) morning". I know he really wanted to.

"Right now, it's been good baseball for a while". So he's locked in.

Compared to his overall season slash line of.260/.311/.473, Machado did not do as well hitting against righties on the road last season, maintaining a slash line of.227/.264/.387 across 254 such plate appearances. That's the number Ramirez must reach to guarantee his $22 million option for 2019. That won't fly against Sale, who is stingy on the mound to begin with, and has won his last five career starts against the O's by a coming score of 31-8, including a 21-5 margin in three starts as a member of the Red Sox. Pedro Alvarez went 2 for 3 with a home run and two RBIs, while Chance Sisco added an RBI as well to round out the scoring for the O's in the loss.
