Slight Change in Plans for Manny

From Dylan Hernandez at the LA 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.

The left fielder will work out with the Dodgers on July 1, travel with the team to San Diego on July 2 and be in the major league lineup on July 3 for the opening game of a three-game series against the Padres.

The schedule, however, is subject to change, the sources said.

Sorry, Lake Elsinore!

Well I'll-Be-Quirky. Stopping by AAA first and A after.

If nothing else, it should be good for his confidence.
