Mark DeRosa is considering retirement after the season.
The Blue Jays have a $750,000 club option on DeRosa, which they're expected to exercise, but only if the 38-year-old chooses to continue his career. DeRosa has been useful off the bench for the Jays, batting .254/.357/.441 against lefties. "To be honest with you, this season has been fun, it's been a grind. … But I really just want to get away for a minute, reestablish myself as a husband and father, and then kind of decide whether I want to keep going," DeRosa said. "Obviously, they have much bigger fish to fry than me, and I understand that. Once I hear what direction they kind of want to go with, then it's a decision to be made by me and my wife."
