ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Jan. 21 (UPI) -- Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez, who were previously teammates in Boston, have signed one-year deals with the Tampa Bay Rays, SI.com reported.

Damon and Ramirez will become members of the Rays if they pass their physical exams, the report said. Damon would receive 5.25 million, with another $750,000 possible in incentives, and Ramirez has agreed to a $2 million contract.

Damon played last season with Detroit, where he batted .271 with eight homers and 51 RBI. He spent eight years with Boston and played for the New York Yankees from 2006-09.
