Manny Ramirez‘s comeback is on hold, as the 39-year-old designated hitter was held out of yesterday’s minor-league rehab game with a wrist injury.

Ramirez went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in his minors debut, which was supposed to be the first of 10 games played at Triple-A before returning from his 50-game suspension and joining the A’s.

Those plans may now be on hold, although so far the A’s haven’t said how long they expect Ramirez to miss with the wrist injury and it’s possible he could be back in Sacramento’s lineup tonight.

If the setback doesn’t alter his timetable then Ramirez is on schedule to make his A’s debut against the Twins on May 30, which also happens to be his 40th birthday.

    Everyone knows this isn’t going to end well, right? And may I add, “GOOD!”

    Stick a fork in Ramirez because he is done. I certainly won’t miss this guy.
