As the all-star break approaches, the Texas Rangers are once again buyers and are in need of some help. So who do they turn to? Well according to Evan Grant of Dallas Morning News the Rangers have seek the services of Manny Ramirez who is now 41 years old and last played in the majors in 2011 with the Tampa Bay Rays. Manny has been overseas playing for a Taiwanese, EDA Rhinos team this past year hitting .352 with eight home runs and 43 RBIs in 49 games. He just recently left the team and came back to the states because he wanted to be back home with his family.
Manny Ramirez will report to Triple A, Round Rock. Is in currently 19th on the career home run list with 555 home runs. Lifetime .312BA and 1855 career RBI. It’s unsure what he has left in the tank but if he can give the Rangers any production with the bat then I say go for it. Texas desperately misses the production of Josh Hamilton who left for greener pastures in Los Angeles.
