LAT: Manny Ramirez Headed to Minors on Tuesday

Our Friend Dylan Hernandez is reporting that Manny should be headed to the minors on Tuesday (assuming his recent flu-like symptoms and weight loss don’t reappear).

From the L.A. Times:

Manny Ramirez is tentatively scheduled to return to the field on Tuesday in New Mexico, according to baseball sources who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss the matter.

Ramirez, who is in the final weeks of a 50-game suspension for violating baseball’s drug policy, will be with the Dodgers’ triple-A affiliate in Albuquerque for a four-game series that runs from June 23-26. His next stop will be with Class-A Inland Empire in San Bernardino for a three-game series from June 28-30.

I’d really like to see if I can find out from he Dodgers organization how many press credentials are requested for those series in Albuquerque and Inland Empire as opposed to the usual figures. We’ll see if we can get the numbers from the Dodgers PR Team!
