Agent Scott Boras only minutes ago denied an ESPN Deportes report that Manny Ramirez and the Dodgers had agreed on a two-year deal and the slugger was flying to Los Angeles.

Boras told Times Dodgers beat reporter Dylan Hernandez that he had been working hard on a contract, but added, ‘I assure you, we have no deal.’

Earlier today, Ramirez spoke with Times columnist T.J. Simers, telling him that he would be happy with a two-year contract and that he wasn’t taking the sometimes contentious back-and-forth between Boras and the Dodgers personally.

The slugger also sounded hopeful that he might soon be back in a Dodgers uniform. ‘Tell everyone Mannywood is coming,’ Ramirez told Simers.
