2017 FANTASY BASEBALL ISSUES: HANLEY RAMIREZ SHOULDER CAUSING CONCERN FOR RED SOX

                                                                   

The Boston Red Sox are growing increasingly concerned about the shoulder soreness that has kept first baseman Hanley Ramirez from playing first base in spring games and his status for the WBC is possibly now in jeopardy.  The Red Sox are worried enough that they are seriously considering sending Ramirez for tests on the shoulder in order to rule out any serious ailments.  While Ramirez was tremendous in his first season with the Red Sox in 2016 when he hit 30 home runs and batted .286, his body has betrayed him at a high rate the last few seasons and that will become even more of an issue as he moves firmly into his mid-30's.  Those who already own Ramirez, it is not time to worry yet but this is something to keep tabs on.  Meanwhile those who haven't drafted yet should factor this in as well when weighing a pick.  I personally am steering clear of Ramirez given his age, declining speed, and health woes.
