Enrique Rojas of ESPNDeportesLosAngeles.com was told by a source that the Athletics are "very interested" in Manny Ramirez.
Ramirez is currently preparing for his comeback in Miami and plans to hold a workout for MLB teams later this month. The Orioles and Blue Jays recently sent scouts to watch the 39-year-old take batting practice, but Rojas was told that the A's have shown the most interest thus far, even though they haven't watched him train. Ramirez will need to serve a 50-game suspension for his second positive PED test before being eligible to play during the regular season. Chances are he'll have to accept a minor league contract.
