If you have tickets to the games this weekend in Baltimore, there's one player I can guarantee you won't be seeing. That's Manny Ramirez.

Because of the strained left oblique, Ramirez will remain back in Boston over the weekend to work on improving the injury with an eye toward returning to the team. (Matt Clement, who we'll address later, also won't be heading to Baltimore this weekend.)

"Medical people will give us clearance," manager Terry Francona said. "Now he's going to stay back from Baltimore with [rehabilitation coordinator] Scott Waugh because he's just not ready to do the baseball stuff. I have to get a clearance. It's something where I can beat on somebody, say 'Hey, look, we need him.' We obviously want him, but they will clear him when he's available to start baseball activities and then how fast that comes, we'll try to use common sense."
