"It's a special moment for his family," Ramos' agent, Gustavo Mercado, said in a statement to the newspaper. "We're all happy. We're grateful."

FBI Agent Chris Voss confirmed the incident took place due to the "money [Ramos] could produce," while five people have been arrested for the abduction.

"I don't know who those people were," Ramos said. "I know they're Colombians by their accent. Three guys grabbed me there in front of my house, they took me to another SUV and from there they took me into the mountains... thanks to God, everything turned out well."

The ballplayer also thanked the police and National Guard commandos who rescued him, saying "the boys did a great job."
