Manny headed to minors

D065223004.JPGDodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez will soon be donning a minor league uniform in preparation for his major league reinstatement.

Ramirez was suspended 50 games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy after testing positive for a steroid-related substance containing estrogen. He is able to return to the Dodgers on July 3.

The former Red Sox slugger is eligible to begin his minor league stint on Tuesday, but because of the California League’s All-Star break, there are no games until Thursday. Ramirez will likely get back in the batter’s box June 25 for Los Angeles’ Class A affiliate, the Inland Empire 66ers.

“That’s what we’re thinking about. Just for the convenience of the whole thing,” Dodgers manager Joe Torre said, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Ramirez was hitting .348 with six home runs, 20 RBIs and a .492 on-base percentage in 92 at-bats prior to his suspension.
