David Ortiz Tweets Message to Former Teammate Hanley Ramirez, Who Just Returned From DL Stint (Photo)

Hanley Ramirez can only hope to replicate the production that David Ortiz has provided since returning from a stint on the disabled list. The Dodgers shortstop at least has Ortiz’s blessing, though.

Ortiz sent out a tweet on Thursday afternoon wishing his “boy” the best of luck. Ramirez already returned with a bang — going deep in his first game on Tuesday and going 3-for-4 on Wednesday — but a little extra support from Big Papi never hurt.

Ortiz and Ramirez, of course, were teammates in Boston briefly in 2005, when Ramirez was still an up-and-coming prospect. Ramirez was eventually dealt to the Marlins, and then later to the Dodgers, but it’s clear the two still keep in touch.

Check out Ortiz’s tweet below.
