BOSTON (AP) Hanley Ramirez has been designated for assignment by the Boston Red Sox, who are responsible for the $15.25 million remaining on his contract but avoided him triggering a $22 million salary for 2019.

Boston made the move Friday to clear a roster spot for All-Star second baseman Dustin Pedroia, who was activated from the disabled list and after recovering from knee surgery.

"We've been looking at making a move because we knew that this day with Dustin would come," Red Sox president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski said Friday prior to a game against Atlanta. "We talked about all different types of possibilities."
