Major League Baseball had no comment on the report.

Former Red Sox first baseman Hanley Ramirez is reportedly being "eyed" in an ongoing federal and state investigation, per Michele McPhee of ABC News.

McPhee explained in an interview with the station that a drug trafficking suspect Facetimed Ramirez during a traffic stop which ended with the seizure of "a significant amount of drugs". The friend grew up in the Dominican Republic with Ramirez. However, Ramirez cooperated with police and it became clear he was unaware of what was happening.

The friend told police that a box in his vehicle contained books that belonged to Ramirez, who told the officers that the box was not his and they were free to open it. The suspect in the police stop alleges to know Ramirez, she said, but Ramirez was not with him in the auto.

"His use of Mr. Ramirez's name was an ill-thought-out attempt to evade further police scrutiny", the lawyer said.
Ramirez allowed the cop to open the box, which contained two pounds of fentanyl in a gift bag.

"Hanley was designated for assignment for baseball reasons", Red Sox spokesperson Kevin Gregg told the Boston Herald on Friday night.

Ramirez's agent, Adam Katz, also denied having any prior knowledge of the investigation.

The Red Sox reiterated on Friday, in the wake of a report linking Hanley Ramirez to a possible criminal investigation, that it was a baseball-related decision when they designated the veteran slugger for assignment last month.
