(CBS/AP) – Manny Ramirez has sent a letter to Major League Baseball announcing his retirement after being notified of an issue under MLB’s drug policy.
.
Statement from MLB:
“Major League Baseball recently notified Manny Ramirez of an issue under Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program,” the statement said. “Rather than continue with the process under the Program, Ramirez has informed MLB that he is retiring as an active player. If Ramirez seeks reinstatement in the future, the process under the Drug Program will be completed. MLB will not have any further comment on this matter.”

He has previously served a 50-game suspension for violating the drug policy while he was with the Los Angeles Dodgers.
