Ramirez’s mind on auction?

By on January 11, 2020

first_imgManny Ramirez, who received permission from the Boston Red Sox to report late to spring training for family reasons, was scheduled to attend a car auction Saturday in Atlantic City, N.J., according to the promoter of the auction. Earlier Wednesday, Boston general manager Theo Epstein said Ramirez has an excused absence and will report March 1 for the second straight year. Pitcher Julian Tavarez, Ramirez’s close friend, said Monday the slugger’s mother recently had surgery and Ramirez was with her in Florida. But later Wednesday, Ramirez’s plans to appear at the car show surfaced in a report posted on the Boston Globe’s Web site. It said Ramirez’s mother’s condition might prevent him from attending, and it wasn’t known when the appearance was initially scheduled. Also: Washington closer Chad Cordero and San Diego second baseman Todd Walker won their salary hearings. Cordero received a raise to $4.15million from $525,000 instead of the club’s offer of $3.65 million. Walker will get an increase from $2.5 million to $3.95 million instead of the Padres’ $2.75million offer. … Baltimore Orioles pitcher Kris Benson is trying to avoid surgery on his injured right shoulder with aggressive rehabilitation. If successful, it would allow him to pitch this season. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!
