Ramirez Intends To Seek Reinstatement & Return

Manny Ramirez intends to play Major League Baseball again, so he will seek reinstatement from MLB, according to ESPN.com. Ramirez says he's prepared to serve the 100-game suspension he received this year for violating MLB’s drug policy for a second time.

“If any team wants to sign me, I would play,” Ramirez told Enrique Rojas. “If no one does, I would look to play in Japan or any other place. I was not prepared for retirement."

Rob Manfred, MLB's executive VP of labor relations, confirmed to ESPN.com's Jerry Crasnick that Ramirez will not be able to play winter ball in the Dominican Republic. He's on the inactive list and would require commissioner Bud Selig's approval to play.

Ramirez, who appeared in five games for the Rays this year, posted a .312/.411/.585 line and 555 home runs in 19 MLB seasons. The 12-time All-Star has told agent Scott Boras of his intent to return to the Major Leagues.
