Ramirez broke into the majors with Boston in 2005, but was traded to the Florida Marlins after that season in the deal which brought Josh Beckett and Mike Lowell to the Red Sox.
It's the corresponding move for the Red Sox activating second baseman Dustin Pedroia (knee) from the disabled list.
Ramirez has struggled a bit after a hot start, but he is hitting.254 with six home runs and 29 RBI and provided the Red Sox with a risky bat in the middle of their order. Twenty-five of his starts were at first base and 19 as the designated hitter.
During his four seasons with Boston, Ramirez batted.260 with 78 homers and 255 RBIs.
Ramirez is in the midst of an 0-for-20 slump, but was off to a decent start to the year. He was hitless in his last 21 at bats. As Cora is said to have pointed out, Ramirez was not the absolute best option at first base.
The decision to part ways with Ramirez may avoid a potentially awkward situation related to his $22 million vesting option for 2019. The Red Sox are responsible for the vast majority of Sandoval's $18 million salary this year, with the $545,000 he is earning from San Francisco offset against the total.
It's certainly possible that there'll be some rust to be shaken off, as Pedroia went 1-for-14 with three walks in a minor league rehab assignment with the Red Sox' Triple-A affiliate in Pawtucket. Swihart, the No. 3 catcher and a rarely used left fielder, has appeared in only 17 games for Boston. His defense at first base couldn't make up for his offensive liabilities, especially with former Gold Glover Mitch Moreland also available.
Pedroia, 34, had been Boston's opening day second baseman every year from 2007-17.
