While another Ramirez–Hanley Ramirez (who is SUPER fun to watch)–is lighting up Los Angeles, batting .383 and hitting ridiculous moonshots, Manny, who took LA by storm back in 2008, is playing playing ball for the Texas Rangers’ Triple A affiliate, the Round Rock Express.
Things aren’t going perfectly for Manny in Round Rock. Through 20 games, the 41-year-old former superstar is batting .267 with an unimpressive slugging percentage of .400. It doesn’t appear that Manny will get a call up to the Rangers any time soon, at least not unless he suddenly gets his power back.
Hopefully his time in the Minors will at least bring us some more Manny Moments soon, if not a Manny comeback to the Majors.
