Manny On His Way To Cleveland - But Too Late For Monday's Game, Will Debut Tuesday

Via tweet from USA Today’s Bob Nightengale:

#mlb #whitesox #dodgers Manny waited for deal to be finalized before leaving for Cleveland. Flight lands tonite, but too late for game.

Nightengale added:

#mlb #whitesox #dodgers Manny’s White Sox debut is scheduled for Tuesday against Cleveland.

So, those of you waiting for #99 (presuming he’ll wear the same number he wore in LA) to debut for the White Sox will have to wait until tomorrow night’s game.

The Sox also made a roster move to make room for Manny:

#WhiteSox announce they have claimed Manny Ramirez off waivers from #Dodgers. Chicago also transfers @JakePeavy_44 to 60-day DL

Placing a player on the 60-day DL is a procedural move; players on the 60-day DL don't count against the 40-man roster limit.
