Red Sox tell Hanley Ramirez to slim down

Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo said the team instructed Ramirez to lose 15-20 pounds so he could play 1B next season. Said Lovullo: "It has been discussed.

What happened to Hanley Ramirez?

It's amazing the Red Sox's Ramirez hasn't been sent down to Little League baseball given his horrendous defense this season. He's still managed to earn an award, but it's surely not the one he wanted. End-of-season awards
