News: Red Sox manager John Farrell said after Monday's 5-1 loss that left fielder Hanley Ramirez (shoulder) is considered day-to-day, WEEI.com reports.

"He's day-to-day right now," Farrell said. "Obviously the sprain to the left shoulder on the collision. We're hopeful over the next couple days there's some improvement. There's no clear-cut DL at this point. So he's day-to-day."

Ramirez suffered a shoulder injury while slamming into an outfield wall while trying to make a play. He was removed from the game and later announced to have a sprained shoulder.

"Based on the exams and the images [Monday night], I don't have anything that suggests there's a reoccurrence of an old injury," Farrell said. "I think over the coming days, we'll have a read on how he can recover and we're hopeful he won't miss significant time."

Ramirez has hit .283/.340/.609 with 10 home runs and 22 RBI in 92 at-bats.
