Manny Scratched

Outfielder Manny Ramirez was scratched from the lineup one hour before Thursday’s exhibition game with Korea because of a tight hamstring muscle, the Dodgers announced. Ramirez, expected to play at be the designated hitter in the game against Team Korea’s World Baseball Classic entrant, told manager Joe Torre he was able to play, but Torre scratched him anyway.  

It would have been Ramirez’s first exhibition game, one week after signing a two-year $45 million contract. — Ken Gurnick
