ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers took what general manager Jon Daniels called a "flier" on Wednesday, agreeing to terms on a minor-league deal with outfielder Manny Ramirez, who said he will donate his salary to charity.
"[My salary] is the minimum wage, but for me it's too much money," Ramirez told ESPNDeportes.com's Enrique Rojas.
Ramirez, 41, was assigned to Triple-A Round Rock and will report there on Thursday. He will work out with Round Rock before he plays in a game.
"I feel blessed spiritually; I have no words to describe how happy I am," Ramirez said.
