Hanley Ramirez Is Not Under Any Investigation For Drugs

A [former, at this point] friend of Hanley Ramirez mentioned his name to police in an effort to avoid arrest while transporting a box of fentanyl.

[A] new report from the Boston Globe says that Ramirez is not being linked to any drug ring. Ramirez's name only came up with the investigation because a so-called friend tried to pin a box in his car with two kilograms of fentanyl on Ramirez when he was stopped by police.

The man arrested with the drugs, whose identity has not been made public, was stopped in Massachusetts in April by state police after they received a tip from an informant. ...

The man's attorney told the Globe that his client's "use of Mr. Ramirez's name was an ill-thought-out attempt to evade further police scrutiny."
Adam Katz, Ramirez's agent:
The reporting on Hanley's involvement in this matter was reckless and irresponsible. It's unfortunate that one careless, inaccurate story can generate such widespread negative and damaging coverage. Hanley is pleased to be absolved from wrongdoing and having any involvement in this matter.
Ramirez tweeted on Sunday: "I have been home enjoying my family. Not being on a team has been my choice."
