Manny Ramirez is retiring as a player, Major League Baseball announced in a statement issued Friday afternoon.

The statement said Ramirez had "an issue" under MLB's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment Program and informed the league he is hanging it up rather than "continue with the process under the program."

The statement, in full, reads as follows: "Major League Baseball recently notified Manny Ramirez of an issue under Major League Baseball's Joint Drug Prevention and Treatment program. Rather than continue with the process under the program, Ramirez has informed MLB that he is retiring as an active player. If Ramirez seeks reinstatement in the future, the process under the drug program will be completed. MLB will not have any further comment on this matter."

Ramirez, with 555 career home runs, signed with the Rays this offseason and was off to a 1-for-17 start at the plate. The 12-time All-Star wasn't with the team on Thursday because manager Joe Maddon said he was attending to a "family matter."

In 2009, Ramirez, 38, was suspended 50 games by MLB for violating the league's drug policy.

"We are obviously surprised and disappointed by the news," the Rays said in a follow-up statement. "We will have no further comment on this matter, and our fans and organization will carry on."

Now we know why the Rays blew up the last few years. They've clearly started a culture of roiding
