Hanley Ramirez Gives Life Update, Throws Shade At ‘Reckless’ Report

Hanley Ramirez has responded.

The ex-Boston Red Sox slugger has been a free agent for more than three weeks since his official release after being designated for assignment by the Sox.

And most recently, his name circulated in a less-than-flattering light.

It was reported Friday by ABC’s Michele McPhee that Ramirez was being “eyed” in a federal and state investigation, later adding that it was involving a drug ring based out of Lawrence, Mass. That, however, was proven to be false Sunday by The Boston Globe. McPhee’s initial report resulted in speculation that the alleged investigation was the reason Ramirez had yet to land with a team.

That was until Sunday night, when Ramirez responded. The 34-year-old addressed both the reports and his free-agent situation on Twitter.

Well, there you have it.

What’s next for Ramirez remains to be seen, but some clarity sure has been added to his current life situation.
