Manny wants in again. And really, can you blame him? Manny Ramirez, the ex-Boston Red Sox World Series MVP, has reportedly filed papers to return to Major League Baseball, according to a FOX Sports report.
Manny Ramirez, who retired in April following a second violation of Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program, plans to resume his playing career, MLB announced Sunday, confirming an earlier report by FOXSports.com. (via FOX Sports)
Ramirez faces a 100-game suspension for his second positive drug test, but MLB will reportedly cut it to 50 games considering the time he has already spent away from the game.
Ramirez is 39 years old and last played for the Tampa Bay Rays in 2011, hitting .059 with zero home runs and one RBI in five games. In his 19 year career, Ramirez had a career batting average of .312 with 555 home runs and 1,831 RBI.
