Manny to DH Friday

Manny Ramirez will be the designated hitter for the Dodgers in Friday’s exhibition opener against the White Sox, manager Joe Torre said Thursday.

The Dodgers will be the visiting team at Camelback Ranch-Glendale, where they share the complex with the White Sox. The teams play again Saturday, with the Dodgers as the home team.

Torre said the club will again use the designated hitter in early games this Spring to get more at-bats for position players, even in games against National League clubs, as long as those clubs agree to it. — Ken Gurnick
