Manny Ramirez reportedly cleared for reinstatement | MLB.com: News

Manny Ramirez’s path to a comeback is officially clear.

According to ESPN’s Buster Olney, Ramirez has been reinstated from the voluntary retirement list. The outfielder, who will turn 40 in May, can return for his 20th big league season after first serving a 50-game suspension under MLB’s Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program.

Ramirez was initially given a 100-game suspension on April 8 this year for a violation of the program, the second of his career. However, as he essentially sat out nearly all of last season after appearing in five games with Tampa Bay, he’ll be required to serve 50 games upon signing.
