Rangers | Manny Ramirez won't be rushed

The Texas Rangers don't plan on rushing OF Manny Ramirez to the majors while 1B Lance Berkman (hip) is sidelined. "I really don't know what to expect with Manny," general manager Jon Daniels said. "We don't have any set expectations. We're just going to let him play and evaluate it as it goes. Manny hasn't played at the big league level in a couple of years. We'll wait and see. We didn't sign him expecting him to be a knight in shining armor."

Fantasy Tip: Those in deep AL-only formats may want to stash Ramirez in case he's called up shortly after the All-Star break. But just know that there's no guarantee he makes it back to the bigs. Mike Olt is also down at Triple-A Round Rock, and they could very well choose to pass on Ramirez in favor of Olt.
