Tampa Bay Rays signings of Johnny Damon, Manny Ramirez may not be finalized until next week

The Tampa Bay Rays expected signings of Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez may not be finalized until next week.

In typical free agent signings, the players have to come to St. Petersburg for physical exams and tests, and to finalize paperwork. Though word of the agreements first broke on Friday, the scheduling of the visits could delay the official announcement, and any comment from the Rays on the additions.

The two veteran hitters agreed to one-year deals, Damon for a reported $5.25-million and Ramirez for $2-million.
