Red Sox ‘Struggling’ To Trade Hanley Ramirez

Published

on

The Boston Red Sox are finding their efforts to trade designated hitter Hanley Ramirez far more difficult than they anticipated.

Boston “would eat some 2018 money” in a potential Ramirez deal, according to Evan Drellich of NBC Sports Boston, while also mentioning that Ramirez’s “plate appearance clause that kicks in for 2019 makes it very tough.”

The 2019 option on Ramirez’s contract vests if he accumulates 1,050 plate appearances in 2017-2018, according to Spotrac.

Boston continues to pursue free agent JD Ramirez and while the signing of first baseman Mitch Moreland eliminates them from Eric Hosmer, Bob Nightengale of USA Today says that the Red Sox “clearly want one man, and one man only” in Martinez.

This one, just doesn’t make much sense if the plan is to move Andujar to make room for the likes of Manny Machado.

According to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal and Robert Murray, the Yankees are “open to moving” Andjuar via trade, but there is no clear trade path to reference at this time.

This development clearly shows the Yankees desire to sign Machado to a free agent deal.

The Yankees and Mets have also been linked in a potential deal that could see Noah Syndergaard end up in New York, with Andujar on his way out.
