Manny Ramirez is retiring from Major League Baseball due to “an issue” with drugs, the MLB said Friday. In a statement, the MLB said they had “recently notified Manny Ramirez of an issue under Major League Baseball’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.” Rather than “continue with the process under the Program,” Ramirez opted to retire, the statement read. According to The New York Times, Ramirez tested postive for steroid abuse, an infraction for which he would have faced a 100-game suspension. So far this season, he has batted 1 for 17 for the Devil Rays.
