Bob Nightengale tweets that Manny Ramirez is on his way to Cleveland and should be in the White Sox lineup tonight.

Earlier Nightengale tweeted that the Dodgers haven’t decided if they want a prospect from the White Sox for Manny, meaning it’ll be a straight waiver claim. Before that Nightengale tweeted that the Dodgers are trying to decide whether to take 22-year old Winston-Salem 3B Jon Gilmore, who’s hitting .318/.354/.404, and pick up some of Manny’s salary or take only the salary relief.

UPDATE #1: And the move is done tweets Nightengale. Peter Gammons tweets that the White Sox decided to pick up all of Manny’s remaining salary ($3.8 million) and not give any prospects. Nightengale tweets that the Dodgers rejected the White Sox offer and chose salary relief.

Nightengale, also, tweets that Manny waited for the deal to be finalized before leaving for Cleveland, and won’t be in time for tonight’s game. He’s scheduled to play in the Tuesday night game.

UPDATE #2: Here’s the press release.

And here are a few more Manny to the White Sox links: BB Musings, HardballTalk, Fangraphs.
