CHICAGO – As the White Sox and Dodgers work out a deal for Manny Ramirez, word comes that the veteran run producer has been held out of the Dodgers’ lineup tonight at Colorado.

The White Sox were awarded a waiver claim on Ramirez on Friday and have until Tuesday to work a trade with the Dodgers.

Ramirez was out of the Dodgers lineup as expected for Thursday’s day game at Milwaukee and manager Joe Torre said then that it was just a one-day break. Apparently not.

It could mean a deal is close to being announced, but not necessarily. The teams could be convinced a deal will be completed in the next 24 to 48 hours and neither wants to take a chance that Ramirez gets hurt. He has been on the disabled list three times this season, twice for a calf strain.
