Rangers interested in Manny, not Hawpe

The White Sox apparently aren't the only team with interest in Manny Ramirez.'s T.R. Sullivan reports the Rangers are "mulling the possibility of talking to the Dodgers" about Ramirez.

A club official, though, does tell Sullivan it's "unlikely" the Rangers will get Ramirez and predicts Ramirez will end the season with the Dodgers.

The White Sox have made little secret of their interest in Ramirez and are ahead of the Rangers on the waiver wire. Ramirez was reportedly placed on waivers on Wednesday, teams would then have until Friday to put in a claim on Ramirez. The White Sox and Dodgers have reportedly already started talks about a trade of Ramirez.

National League clubs will have first priority on Ramirez, but his outfield play makes that unlikely.

Ramirez has a no-trade clause and could kill any trade.

Sullivan also notes the Rangers are not interested in free agent Brad Hawpe. Hawpe cleared waivers on Thursday and became a free agent. The Padres are reportedly interested in Hawpe. He could also draw interest from the Red Sox or Rays.
