Manny Ramirez is quickly running out of potential landing spots.
According to Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com, Orioles executive vice president Dan Duquette said earlier this evening that he doesn’t see Ramirez as a fit.
Duquette has played things pretty close to the vest in regard to Ramirez since being hired by Baltimore, but the club did send scouts to watch the 39-year-old take batting practice in Miami. However, they appear content to start spring training with their current roster.
Athletics general manager Billy Beane told Joe Stiglich of the Bay Area News Group earlier this afternoon that he’s still hoping to sign a “middle-of-lineup DH.” While he wouldn’t address any specific players, Oakland looks like Ramirez’s best chance — and perhaps the only option — to resume his MLB career. As we learned last weekend, the A’s are also reportedly considering Magglio Ordonez.
