07:16 AM ET 07.17 | Manny Ramirez may be back in North America, but despite hints from Nolan Ryan suggesting that he might be an option after going 6-for-14 with two home runs in his previous three games, the slugger's Major League Baseball chances may have changed Tuesday. The Rangers are going to keep [Ramirez] at Triple A Round Rock. There are no plans to bring him to the big leagues after the All-Star Game, according to sources. The Rangers are interested in Matt Garza but they are not going to give up Martin Perez. That's not going to happen. Maybe Neil Ramirez or Carlos Pimentel, maybe infielder Leury Garcia or Luis Sardinas.

As long as Nelson Cruz isn't suspended, then Manny isn't a Ranger.

Pitching is the issue here.

Manny would be too much of a distraction past the break for a winning team.

Bro..... Is that a banana phone ?

My question to the Rangers organization is why you sign Manny in the first place if you had no intentions of playing him in Arlington?

So what I get from this article is that the Rangers are interested in Garza and are ready to deal ANY of their mariachi band members (Ramirez, Pimentel, Garcia, Sardinas) to acquire him......

If he sticks it out like a good boy, he may be part of September call ups.... but that's about as far as I see him going.

Insurance in case Cruz is/was suspended.

Doesn't Manny still have another 50 game suspension to serve?

Somehow MLB considers the suspension served. ??

Wise choice for rangers. They don't need the distraction and a player who plays only when he feels like it. The Rangers are better off taking their chances with who they are playing now. If they keep Manny in RoundRock talking to his banana, maybe he will retire or look somewhere else. Manny would like to get moved to ML roster. My guess is he has probably blown every thing and now broke.
