Ramirez leaves Taiwan, hopes to play in majors

By Associated Press

POSTED:


TAIPEI, Taiwan >> Slugger Manny Ramirez has departed Taiwan after playing for The Rhinos for three months, saying he will work out in the United States and hopes to play again in the major leagues.

Ramirez also said he would consider offers to play in Japan.

He talked through a translator on Friday at Kaohsiung airport in southern Taiwan, waving to a raucous crowd of fans who chanted, "Manny, Manny."

The Rhinos said they tried to keep the 12-time All-Star in Taiwan, including raising his monthly pay to almost $60,000 from $25,000, but the 41-year-old slugger missed his family in New York.

His last major league appearance was with the Tampa Bay Rays in 2011.
