Manny Still on for Thursday
Manager Joe Torre said Tuesday he still plans for Manny Ramirez to make his Spring debut Thursday in an exhibition against WBC qualifier Team Korea. Torre said it wasn’t yet determined if Ramirez will play left field or be the designated hitter.
Torre also said Hong-Chih Kuo and Cory Wade are on schedule to make their first “A” game appearance Friday, Saturday or Sunday. Both have been protected with a slow schedule while nursing a tender elbow and shoulder, respectively.
