LOS ANGELES — The Dodgers made room on the active roster for Manny Ramirez by placing his former Boston teammate, shortstop Nomar Garciaparra, on the 15-day disabled list with a sprained left knee.
Garciaparra, who felt he was nearly healthy enough to return to action, wasn’t happy about it.
“You’ll have to ask Joe about it,” he said, referring to manager Joe Torre. “I’m feeling good, improving a lot faster than they anticipated. We’ll see what happens.”
Welcome Back, Angel Berroa!… err, or not.
