    Hanley Ramirez won't play the outfield again this season.

    Advice: Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo made that announcement Tuesday.

Hanley could get some starts at first base down the stretch. That's where he'll open the 2016 season. Rotoworld.com Today, 1:56 pm

    Advice: Berry was cut loose from the Triple-A affiliate of the Red Sox earlier this month after batting just .228/.329/.287 in 106 games. The 30-year-old outfielder is nothing more than organizational depth for the Cubs. Rotoworld.com Aug 24, 10:45 am
