Indians designate Hanley Ramirez for assignment

Hanley Ramirez

Hanley Ramirez’s tenure with the Cleveland Indians looks to be a short one.

The Indians activated shortstop Francisco Lindor from the injured list on Saturday. As the corresponding move, the team designated Ramirez for assignment, likely ending his time with the organization.

Ramirez appeared in 16 games for Cleveland after making the team out of spring training. He hit just .184 with two home runs in that span, and the 35-year-old’s bat simply didn’t look like it belonged in a regular role anymore. A team may pick him up on reputation with the hopes of catching lightning in a bottle, but Ramirez’s best days are clearly behind him, and it doesn’t look like he has a ton left in his bat.
