Dodgers Offer $25 Million to Manny Ramirez

Still unsigned in the first week of February, Manny Ramirez is running out of options. His agent, Scott Boras, is consistently seeking a 4-6 year deal for $25-30 million per year, but is having trouble finding a buyer due to the state of the economy. The Dodgers Monday night made it clear they want Ramirez back, but on their terms.

Los Angeles made a one-year, $25 million offer to the free agent slugger, which would make him the second-highest paid player in the game behind Alex Rodriguez. It would also give him another contract year and a shot at free agency next year presumably when the economy is better.

Two months ago, the Dodgers offered Manny a two-year, $45 million deal with a club option for 2011, but Manny turned away and sought employment elsewhere. Manny had a clear destination with the Yankees until they signed Mark Teixeira, which in turn hurt Manny’s value.
