Former Red Sox outfielder and designated hitter Manny Ramirez signed on to play with a team in Taiwan for 2013, the EDA Rhinos.
Ramirez played for the Red Sox from 2001-2008 and belted 274 home runs and led them to two World Series titles. He then played for the LA Dodgers, the Chicago White Sox and the Tampa Bay Rays before abruptly retiring after he was accused of violating the MLB performance-enhancing drug policy in 2011. It was his second violation – he was suspended 50 games in 2009 while with the Dodgers.
The former MLB star is set to make around $300,000 for the season with the EDA Rhinos.
