Report: Manny Ramirez may play in Taiwan
Outfielder Manny Ramirez may try and continue his playing career with a team in Taiwan, according to Jon Paul Morosi. He is reportedly in talks with the EDO Rhinos of the Taiwanese professional league.
Ramirez, who hit four home runs during the Dominican Winter league playoffs this year, signed a minor league deal with the Athletics last season, but was released by the team in June after hitting .302 with 14 RBI for Triple-A Sacramento.
In his career, Ramirez has hit 555 home runs.
His last appearance in the majors came back on April 7th of 2011 for the Tampa Bay Rays. That season was cut short after the slugger was issued a 100-game suspension for failing a second drug test. Ramirez also served a 50-game suspension in 2009 for failing a test.
