CLEVELAND (AP) - Manny Ramirez is not in the starting lineup for his first game with the Chicago White Sox.

A little late but with all his hair, Ramirez finally joined his new team Tuesday. The White Sox were playing at Cleveland a few hours later.

The White Sox claimed the 12-time All-Star slugger on waivers this week to help their AL playoff push. He arrived at Progressive Field at 3:15 p.m., entering from the Indians players’ parking lot, where he used to park during his eight seasons with the Indians. His dreadlocked hair was at its usual length, but could soon be shorter.

The White Sox have an appearance policy, and they expect Ramirez to conform to it and get his dreadlocks trimmed.

A barber was set up in a room adjacent to Cleveland’s clubhouse.
