Last we heard from Ramirez, he was pursuing a comeback in Taiwan in May. However, no deal ever materialized for Ramirez in the Chinese Professional Baseball League. He’ll now go to Australia in hopes of logging his first professional action since he played in the Dominican Winter League in 2014-15.
Although he’s statistically one of the greatest hitters Major League Baseball has ever seen, there’s little to no chance Ramirez will return to MLB as he approaches the age of 50. He last graced the majors in 2011 with the Rays, though he’s obviously better known for his highly successful runs with the Indians, Red Sox and Dodgers. Ramirez slashed .312/.411/.585 (153 wRC+) with 555 home runs and 66.3 fWAR in 9,774 plate appearances during his time in the bigs.
