The Manny Ramirez era in Los Angeles officially ended Wednesday, when the Chicago White Sox acquired the slugger on a waiver claim, and the Dodgers did not receive any players in return.

The White Sox won the rights to Ramirez last Friday, giving them until Tuesday to make a deal.

Ramirez could have blocked being sent to the White Sox because he had a no-trade clause in his contract, but he declined to do so.

The White Sox will pay his nearly $4 million salary for the rest of the season.

This season he appeared in 66 of the Dodgers’ 131 games with eight home runs, 40 runs batted in and a .311 batting average.
