Manny Ramirez Rehab Assignment Will Start Saturday In Albuquerque

Remember the old Bugs Bunny line?

For some reason, Manny Ramirez would seem to be exactly the baseball player who would take a wrong turn at Aibuquerque. And starting Wednesday, he’ll get his chance to do just that:

Manny will be starting a 10-day rehab assignment with the Triple-A Sacramento River Cats, who play Saturday at Albuquerque. If he plays the entire 10 games on the rehab assignment, the first day he’d be eligible to be reinstated to the major league Athletics would be May 29.

Manny’s most likely to spend time at DH if he’s promoted to the major-league squad. If so, he’d take playing time primarily from Seth Smith (.253/.395/.396) and Jonny Gomes (.236/.375/.472), who have had the bulk of playing time (26 starts) at DH for the A’s this year.

Will it work? Who knows?

UPDATE: The A's officially announced the date of Manny's first game with the team:
