Hanley Ramirez reportedly faces drug probe, but Red Sox deny connection to release

The Red Sox’ release of Hanley Ramirez on June 1 was “entirely unrelated,” according to a source, to yesterday’s report from Michele McPhee of ABC News that the veteran ballplayer is the subject of a federal and state criminal investigation.

When the Red Sox released Ramirez last month, they said the reason was strictly baseball-related, that Ramirez’ production was not enough to warrant sticking on the team when Dustin Pedroia was activated.
