Manny Ramirez is playing in the Dominican Winter League for Aguilas Cibaenas and made his debut last night, homering on the first pitch he saw as the crowd (and television announcers) went bonkers:
Some other players on Ramirez’s team include former MVP Miguel Tejada, former Cy Young winner Bartolo Colon, former Rookie of the Year Chris Coghlan, and Cardinals stud prospect Oscar Taveras.
LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.
The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.
The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.
Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
