Manny, Team Meet

Suspended outfielder Manny Ramirez held a brief meeting with his Dodgers teammates and uniform staff Friday afternoon at the team hotel in Miami. The Dodgers play the Florida Marlins Friday night to open a three-game series and Ramirez has a home in South Florida. Ramirez was suspended May 7 for violating MLB’s drug policy and this was his first face-to-face meeting with the entire club. The meeting lasted less than 10 minutes. He has telephoned several teammates since the suspension was handed down. Ramirez is not expected at Friday night’s game and it is not known when he will rejoin the club for workouts, which he is allowed to do as long as he is out of uniform when the stadium gates open. — Ken Gurnick
