The Texas Rangers have signed former Red Sox slugger Manny Ramirez to a minor league contract, the team has announced.

Ramirez last played for the EDA Rhinos of the Chinese Professional Baseball League. The 41-year-old hit .352 with 8 home runs, 23 walks, and 21 strikeouts in 206 plate appearances.

One of the greatest hitters in Red Sox history, Ramirez has not played in the major leagues since 2011, when he appeared in five games for the Rays before being suspended 100 games for failing a second drug test. Ramirez signed with the Oakland Athletics and played 17 games with their minor league affiliate before requesting his release.
