Red Sox left fielder Hanley Ramirez left Monday's game prior to the top of the third inning due to illness. He was replaced by Allen Craig. Ramirez fielded a ball off the wall with no issue and grounded out to first base in his only at-bat of the game. He didn't appear bothered on either of those plays. Following the game, manager John Farrell said it was dizziness and light-headedness, which forced him from the game. Everything points to him playing Tuesday in Tampa against the Rays. "There was just the outset of some illness -- some light-headedness," he said. "He was examined by a doctor when he came out of the game. He stayed off his feet. I don't anticipate him from missing tomorrow, but he was unable to go the remainder of today." Through the first 13 games of the season, Ramirez is hitting .250 with five home runs and 12 RBI.
