Manny goes deep for first time at Triple-A

BALTIMORE -- Manny Ramirez delivered his first home run on Tuesday night for Triple-A Round Rock. Ramirez, in his third game since being signed by the Rangers to a Minor League contract, hit a home run off Oklahoma City's Wade LeBlanc in Round Rock's 11-8 victory.

Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a walk and is now 3-for-10 since joining Round Rock. But he still needs to show more. General manager Jon Daniels said the Rangers will take their time in evaluating Ramirez, who has not played in the Major Leagues in over two years.

The Rangers aren't inclined to make a snap judgment, even though they could use another right-handed bat. Jurickson Profar, a switch-hitter, made his second start in left field on Wednesday night with left-hander Wei-Yin Chen on the mound for the Orioles.
