Athletics Release Manny Ramirez

The Athletics have announced that Manny Ramirez has requested his outright release and the team has granted his request.  The veteran recently completed his 50-game suspension and was eligible to join the club on May 30th.

Ramirez, 40, hit .302/.348/.349 for Triple-A Sacramento in 69 plate appearances this year.  Just last week, A's GM Billy Beane said that the club hadn't decided whether to release the slugger.  Oakland signed Ramirez in February and Beane insisted that the move had everything to do with baseball and nothing to do with PR.
