I have not been able to find it in print yet, but according to local AM sports radio in Boston (WEEI), Manny has been suspended indefinitely for his stunts pulled in the last couple days.

I'm still looking for it in print though....

BTW, I heard about this on the Red Sox message board on MLB.com.

Per the AP wire, Ramirez will not be in the lineup tonight.

Red Sox Sit Healthy Ramirez in Chicago

CHICAGO - Manny Ramirez was not in the starting lineup for Tuesday night's game against the Chicago White Sox even though he was healthy enough to play.

Manager Grady Little denied he was punishing his slugger for going out when he was supposed to be sick in bed.

"He is available to DH today, but my decision to wait is: I like the way our club has responded the last few days," Little told reporters before the game. "I'm putting the team out there that I feel gives us the best chance to win."

Asked if Ramirez was being disciplined, Little said: "No, I'm trying to win the game."
