PHOENIX (AP) – Manny Ramirez and the Oakland Athletics have reached agreement on a minor league contract.

The A’s announced the deal Monday. Ramirez is expected to report to spring training by the end of the week.

The 12-time All-Star is due to serve a 50-game suspension for his second positive drug test before he can play for the A’s. Barring rainouts, his first game could be May 30 – on his 40th birthday.



Ramirez ranks 14th on the career list with 555 home runs. This would be the 20th major league season for Ramirez, a career .312 hitter with 1,831 RBIs
