The Cleveland Indians made another roster move Saturday evening, as the team inked former Boston Red Sox slugger Hanley Ramirez.
The Indians agreed to a minor-league deal with Ramirez, as he will compete for a roster spot in the outfield.
Plenty of jobs are open for the Indians. For Hanley, he could potentially filled the need of a designated hitter.
He can also be a potential fit in left field, and also can play first base and third base as well.
The Indians could use a veteran bat off the bench. This is a low risk, high reward signing for the Indians.
In 2018, Ramirez played in 44 games for the Red Sox. He hit 6 home runs, 29 RBI’s, and a .254 batting average.
Ramirez will be 35 this season and he is entering his 15th year in the majors.
He has spent the last four years with Boston. His best year was in 2016 when he hit 30 home runs, 111 RBI’s and a .286 batting average.
