Dodgers receive warning about Manny

LOS ANGELES, June 10 (UPI) -- Major League Baseball has told the Los Angeles Dodgers outfielder Manny Ramirez cannot speak to the media while serving his 50-game suspension.

A team official told MLB.com the Dodgers were reminded Wednesday that Ramirez is not to be in the clubhouse once reporters enter 3 1/2 hours before first pitch of any contest.

Ramirez, suspended 50 games in May for violating the game's drug policy, was in the clubhouse Tuesday when reporters arrived before the Dodgers faced San Diego and spoke for the first time publicly about his suspension.

"I didn't kill nobody, I didn't rape nobody, so that's it," Ramirez told reporters. "I'm just going to come and play the game."

The left fielder is eligible to rejoin the Dodgers July 3, 11 days before the All-Star game in St. Louis, and can play in up to 10 minor league games.

The fan favorite was batting .348 with six home runs and 20 RBI in 27 games (92 at-bats).
