Melky Cabrera Announces Retirement

Melky Cabrera has officially announced his retirement.

Cabrera's last major-league appearance occurred during the 2019 season with the Pittsburgh Pirates. Although he hasn't been in the league for a while, he was still active. Yet, now it's official that he will not be aiming to make another comeback this season. 

Alas, even with this being so, Cabrera had himself a very solid career. In 1,887 games over 15 seasons between the New York Yankees, Atlanta Braves, Kansas City Royals, San Francisco Giants, Toronto Blue Jays, Chicago White Sox, Cleveland, and the Pirate, he had 144 home runs, 854 RBIs, and a .285 batting average. With that, he won a World Series with the Yankees in 2009 and was an All-Star during the 2012 season - where he would also be named All-Star MVP.

Even though Cabrera did not play in the big leagues during the last seasons, he still had a long career. He deserves some respect for that. 

Nevertheless, enjoy your retirement, Melky!
