Ramirez retired from basetball on April 8, 2011 after testing positive for a banned performance-enhancing drug. But he’s been working steadfastly toward a return, holding private workouts in Miami since December.
If Ramirez does land a job this season, he will first have to serve a 50-game suspension for his positive test, as per his agreement with Major League Baseball.
Ramirez played 19 seasons in the major leagues for the Indians, Red Sox, Dodgers, White Sox and Rays. He retired with a .312 career batting average, 555 home runs and 1,831 RBIs to his name.
