Manny Ramirez is scheduled to make his spring training debut Thursday when the Los Angeles Dodgers play South Korea's World Baseball Classic team.

The exhibition game won't count in Cactus League standings, but
Ramirez's return to the Dodgers after agreeing to a $45 million,
two-year contract last week will make it a major attraction.

Los Angeles manager Joe Torre said Tuesday he isn't sure if
Ramirez will play the outfield or be the designated hitter, but the
slugger will get a start on the 50 or so at-bats he's expected to
receive before opening day.
