Ramirez spent 38 of the Red Sox's 50 games hitting third in the lineup and hit second on 12 occasions.
Whether or not Dombrowski ultimately DFA'd Ramirez, Cora had planned to cut his playing time.
After activating Dustin Pedroia off the disabled list, Ramirez was designated for assignment by the Red Sox to make room on the 25-man roster.
Pedroia and Mookie Betts have a long way to go to catch Jim Rice and Dwight Evans, but with Pedroia back in the lineup - and signed through the 2021 season - they have some time to make inroads on the Sox' all-time leaders in homering in the same game.
And while the Red Sox deny it's a reason, there's also a savings of $22 million - which Ramirez, 34, would have made next year if he remained a regular this season.
"The vesting option had nothing to do with it", Dombrowski said.
"He's been scuffling at the plate". E-Rod struck out seven but dealt with lots of base runners after walking three and giving up six hits.
"Hanley's OK. He's not Mitch Moreland", Dombrowski said.
The most telling moment yesterday at Fenway may have come when Cora was asked if he was anxious that Ramirez's departure would hurt clubhouse chemistry. But early this week it seemed Swihart would be the one getting designated.
It was Cora that moved to jettison him.
Hanley Ramirez won't torment the Yankees anymore - at least not as a member of the rival Red Sox. Cora said Swihart will play there as soon as possible - "as early as (Saturday)".
Cora also vowed to give Swihart another look at catcher. "There are certain spots he can catch". "We're going to maximize his talent".
The second reason is the Red Sox must have an enormous amount of faith in Blake Swihart.
"I think it's going to give me more of an opportunity to get in there", he said. I was like, 'That worked.' For him to come in to come in and catch a knuckleballer after not catching since Fort Myers or whenever the last time he caught, that caught my eye. Everyone knows about my relationship with him. "I care about him and his family and everything, and I wish him the best". "Wish him the best".
The Sox were hoping Ramirez could replicate last postseason's success, but after a hot start, he simply wasn't hitting. He was assigned to advanced Class A Sarasota on August 2 - the same day Ramirez, a shortstop, was promoted from Sarasota to the Portland Sea Dogs. "I do feel he's making progress at second base, making the routine plays, but now he doesn't have to grind it out at second the whole time".
Ramirez signed an $88 million, four-year contract with the Red Sox as a free agent before the 2015 season, and Boston is responsible for the $15,258,065 still owed for this season. "It was a two-run game, Steven (Wright) comes in and he didn't blink". I'm excited about it. "We just didn't see the role that would be there as more of a support person as one that fits Hanley well". "For how good of a player he is, it was going to be hard. He's a guy that needs his at-bats". Dombrowski said the move was less about saving on Ramirez's salary next year than it was about improving this year's team.
"He didn't really say very much", Dombrowski said.
So, dump him now - the Red Sox have seven days to trade him or release him - and save $22 million next year. "Love you always", Ramirez tweeted.
Dombrowski said it will be hard to trade Ramirez, so it's likely he'll be released.
