It's a good sign for the player who has experienced plenty of controversy in the past year including a domestic violence charge for allegedly getting into a heated altercation with his wife Juliana back in September. Although Ramirez is allowed to take part in spring training, he is still required to serve a 50-day suspension period for failing his second drug test.
