Ramirez retired from basetball on April 8, 2011 after testing positive for a banned performance-enhancing drug. But he's been working steadfastly toward a return, holding private workouts in Miami since December.

If Ramirez does land a job this season, he will first have to serve a 50-game suspension for his positive test, as per his agreement with Major League Baseball.
