While the Manny Ramirez deal hasn’t yet been officially announced, all signs point to him heading to the White Sox today in a straight waiver transaction. No players will be coming to the Dodgers, and Chicago would be responsible for the remainder of Ramirez’s salary for this season.
The deal should be announced later today, but per Bob Nightengale of USA Today, via Twitter, Manny and the Dodgers have already parted ways:
Manny is on way to Cleveland. Should be in Sox lineup tonite.
The White Sox play the Indians tonight, while the Dodgers host the Phillies at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers haven’t yet made a corresponding roster move, but their likely options would be recalling either outfielder Xavier Paul or a reliever like Travis Schlichting. Rosters expand Wednesday, so if someone doesn’t get called up today he won’t have to wait much longer to be back in the big leagues.
