    Tampa Bay Rays designated hitter Manny Ramirez is retiring.


    Ramirez
    Major League Baseball announced the move in a statement on Friday.

    "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."
