Dylan Hernandez @ LA Times:

Manny Ramirez will be sent to the Chicago White Sox on a waiver deal Monday, according to a baseball source who spoke on the condition of anonymity.The Dodgers aren’t expected to get any players in return, but are likely to unburden themselves of the $4 million or so that Ramirez is due to earn over the remainder of the regular season.

Couldn’t this have happened on Friday? We could have used Manny in the last 2 games.

UPDATE #1: Jayson Stark (ESPN) tweets that there is still a chance a deal gets worked out (Dodgers get a prospect from the Sox in exchange for picking up some salary). The LA Times, MLB.com, and Ken Rosenthal say it will be a straight waiver claim (cash only, no prospects to the Dodgers).

UPDATE #2: Jeff Fletcher (MLB Fanhouse) speculates that Kenny Williams determined the Dodgers lacked the leverage to demand any even a marginal prospect in return for Manny, and didn’t offer them anything.

UPDATE #3: NBC 5 Chicago says Manny’s remaining salary is $3.825 million.
