It's official: The Dodgers send Manny Ramirez to the White Sox

August 30, 2010 | 12:39 pm

Manny Ramirez has officially become a member of the Chicago White Sox, to whom he was assigned on a straight waiver claim on Monday.

Ramirez is on his way to join the White Sox in Cleveland, but isn’t expected to be there in time to play on Monday night, according to a baseball source. He is expected to be in the White Sox lineup on Tuesday.

The White Sox didn’t send any players to the Dodgers, but are taking on the $3.8 million that Ramirez is due to earn over the remainder of the season.

To replace Ramirez, the Dodgers recalled reliever Ramon Troncoso from triple-A Albuquerque.
