UPDATE (7:45 p.m. ET) Hanley Ramirez was a late scratch from the lineup, so Dustin Pedroia moves down to the cleanup spot and into Tom Caron’s lineup.
Original story: Don’t look now, but Hanley Ramirez is playing his best baseball in some time. The Boston Red Sox first baseman hit an opposite field home run off left-handed pitcher Jose Quintana on Tuesday in Chicago, extending his eight-game hitting streak. NESN’s Tom Caron thinks he should be in your DraftKings daily fantasy baseball lineups.
Ramirez is one of TC’s three DraftKings picks for Wednesday. If you’re interested in giving DraftKings a whirl, visit DraftKings.com and enter promo code “NESN” to play for free.
