Ken Rosenthal of FoxSports.com has reported that the Chicago White Sox plan to claim former Red Sox outfielder Manny Ramirez if the Dodgers put him on waivers, which could happen today.
Rosenthal said sources have also told him the Rays and Rangers may have an interest in Ramirez, but the White Sox would have dibs if Ramirez is placed on waivers.
The Dodgers are out of the NL West pennant race and a long shot in a crowded NL wild-card race, and may look to dump the $4.25 million remaining on Ramirez's salary for the season.
