Manny Ramirez has played 19 seasons in the big leagues and he'd like to come out of retirement for at least one more. The slugger retired last April after playing only five games for the Tampa Bay Rays (one hit, one RBI, four strikeouts) because he was about to be hit with a 100-game ban for testing positive for performance—enhancing drugs.

Fox Sports reports that the teams that have the most interest in signing the 39-year-old are the Baltimore Orioles and Oakland Athletics.

Whoever he signs with, Ramirez will only need to sit out for 50 games due to an agreement between the players union and the league.

The 12-time All-Star has been on two World Series-winning squads, knocked out 555 homers, and maintained a career batting average of .312.
