Manny Ramirez has reportedly been claimed off waivers, as noted on Twitter by Jon Morosi of Fox Sports and Jeff Fletcher of AOL Fanhouse. Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated reported another wrinkle:
word is, multiple teams actually claimed manny. the question is: who got claim?
National League teams have waiver priority over American League teams since they are in the same league as the Dodgers. Whatever team is awarded the claim, the Dodgers have until Tuesday afternoon to complete a trade, or they could simply let Ramirez go and the new team would be on the hook for the remainder of his salary, somewhere north of $3.6 million.
