AP source: Dodgers, Ramirez reach agreement

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Manny Ramirez and the Los Angeles Dodgers have reached a preliminary agreement on a $45 million, 2-year contract following months of talks.

The agreement is subject to the outfielder passing a physical, a person familiar with the talks said. The person spoke on condition of anonymity to The Associated Press on Wednesday because the deal was not final.
