UPDATE: Ramirez has now been released from jail after posting $2,500 bond.
A Florida judge told former baseball slugger Manny Ramirez he is to have no direct contact with his wife Juliana in a Tuesday morning hearing following his arrest Monday on domestic battery charge.
The judge set bail at $2,500 for Ramirez, 39, who was being held at Broward County Jail. Police said Ramirez had slapped his wife, who then careened onto a headboard of a bed in their home.
After serving a 50-game suspension in 2009 for violating Major League Baseball’s drug policy, the 12-time All-Star, who played for the Cleveland Indians, Boston Red Sox, Los Angeles Dodgers and Tampa Bay Devil Rays, tested positive again for banned substances this past April, and abruptly retired.
