According to multiple reports (see below), the Red Sox have designated Juan Francisco for assignment to make the signing of Hanley Ramirez official. Juan Francisco was claimed off waivers by the Red Sox just last week from the Toronto Blue Jays.

The Red Sox signed Hanley Ramirez late Sunday night to a 4-year deal and made it official at a press conference today.
