Rocco Baldelli is expected to announce his retirement on Wednesday and accept a role in the Rays' front office.
"I don't anticipate ever playing baseball again. I'm retired. The paperwork will be filed," Baldelli said Tuesday. "And you know what. The only time I feel like it's good to retire is when you're happy to retire. And I'm happy." The 29-year-old Baldelli made a comeback last season and even homered in his first at-bat back with the Rays, but was eventually taken off the ALDS roster due to leg fatigue. The former 2000 first-round pick calls it a career with a .278/.323/.443 career batting line and 531 hits. It's a shame that injuries and illness had to snuff out what once looked like a promising career. Wed, Jan 26, 2011 08:34:00 AM
