I know I didn't get any hits, but I hit some balls good, that's a good sign.
Pedroia has traditionally hit near the top of the batting order.
When Herb Brooks was crafting the 1980 Olympic hockey team, he left a number of the most skilled players off his roster.
Ramirez posted on Twitter, "Thank you, Red Sox Nation".
The Red Sox recognized their Hall of Fame Class of 2018 in a pregame ceremony. "It's been a long time, so it's going to be fun getting out there and playing", he said.
The 34-year-old Ramirez has more than $15 million left on his contract for this season. Pedroia has won four Rawlings Gold Glove Awards (2008, '11, '13-14), the most ever for a Red Sox infielder.

"The vesting option has nothing to do with it", Dombrowski said.
Both men stated that Cora reached out unprompted to suggest that Ramirez ought to be the player removed to make way for the return of Dustin Pedroia. Mitch Moreland has batted cleanup. He hit.163 with three homers and 12 RBIs in May after starting the season with a.330 average, three homers and 17 RBIs.
With Pedroia and Nunez coming off knee injuries, and manager Alex Cora's desire to keep his players fresh, the opening of the DH spot on days Martinez is in the outfield can be beneficial. Ramirez had never played the outfield before and had been injured in three of the previous four seasons. 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. That established, finances nearly certainly played a role in the decision - Ramirez was 302 plate appearances away from having his $22 million option vest for next season. "I care about him and his family and everything, and I wish him the best". The Red Sox are responsible for the vast majority of Sandoval's $18 million salary this year, with the $545,000 he is earning from San Francisco offset against the total.
When Ramirez's struggles this month continued, Cora said the team - and Ramirez - were better served with him gone.
