12-Year Veteran Slugger Announces Retirement

Calling it a career.

Free agent Mitch Moreland announced on Tuesday that he is retiring from baseball.

Moreland was reportedly hoping to play last season, but even with the DH freeing up some spots in the NL, no one was very interested in what he had to offer.

Over his 12-year career, Moreland spent seven seasons with the Texas Rangers, four with the Boston Red Sox, and one each with the San Diego Padres and the Oakland Athletics.

The 37-year-old holds a .251/.318/.446 triple-slash line, with 186 home runs, 618 RBIs and 527 runs scored over 1,260 games in the MLB.

Moreland won the World Series in 2018 with the Red Sox, was an All-Star for the one and only time in his career in 2018 as well, and won a Gold Glove with Boston in 2016.
