Manny Ramirez Suspended; Female Fertility Drug Use Suspected
"Recently, I saw a physician for a personal health issue. He gave me a medication, not a steroid, which he thought was OK to give me. Unfortunately, the medication was banned under our drug policy. Under the policy that mistake is now my responsibility. I have been advised not to say anything more for now. I do want to say one other thing; I've taken and passed about 15 drug tests over the past five seasons."
Ramirez originally planned to appeal the suspension, but withdew the motion. Under MLB policy the identity of the drug will not be officially released.
