A contract offer for former MLB All-Star outfielder Manny Ramirez reportedly "hasn't materialized" amid his efforts to make a comeback in Taiwan's Chinese Professional Baseball League.
Jon Heyman of MLB Network reported the update Wednesday and noted Ramirez will continue to seek opportunities to potentially join a team for the second half of the 2020 CPBL season.
In April, the 47-year-old Dominican Republic native confirmed to Mark Buckton of the Taiwan Times he wanted to play again after being part of the league's EDA Rhinos (now the Fubon Guardians) in 2013.
"My goal for 2020 is to find a roster spot in the CPBL," he said. "I have been itching to get back in the batter's box and be able to compete again. I also miss being around teammates and team dinners postgame. I know if I was given the opportunity to come in an organization as a player-coach, it would do great things for the organization and the league."
