13-Year Veteran DFA'd, Considers Retirement

The Milwaukee Brewers have cut ties with former two-time All-Star and Gold Glove outfielder Lorenzo Cain. The 36-year-old was designated for assignment but says it was a mutual agreement.

Cain sounded discouraged about his play, and almost sounded like a player ready to call it quits.

"It just got to the point that it was time... I've had a great career, can't really be upset about anything. I wish all my teammates... throughout my entire career... nothing but the best. It's been a really fun ride for me, for sure."  

Some of those words sound like a player, who, after 13 years in the big leagues, might be ready to call it a day. Cain doesn't sound convinced that isn't the right move at this point.

"Take a day or two to see where I'm at. Is it maybe to sign with another team, or maybe just call it quits."

If this is it for Cain, he has had a great career, with a lifetime .283 average, a .343 on-base percentage, 190 stolen bases, two All-Star game, one Gold Glove, and a World Series ring with the 2015 Kansas City Royals.
