The Boston Red Sox are learning there’s no rest for the weary, but they landed in Detroit with some reinforcement in the form of Hanley Ramirez.
The Red Sox slugger is back in the lineup after missing the last three games while on the bereavement list. He’ll jump right back into a lineup that’s heavy on bench guys for Boston, which plays Thursday afternoon in Detroit after going Wednesday night in Baltimore.
Ramirez also is making a return to Tom Caron’s DraftKings lineup. Ramirez has only one career at-bat against Tigers starter Matt Boyd, but that one AB resulted in a solo home run.

–Hanley Ramirez, 1B, Boston Red Sox
–Jose Fernandez, SP, Miami Marlins
