J.P. Arencibia has announced his retirement from baseball.
Arencibia, 31, spent last season at the Triple-A level between the Rays and Phillies while batting .241/.269/.420 with 16 home runs and 49 RBI over 90 games. Known for his power and non-existent plate discipline, Arencibia will finish with a .212/.258/.412 career batting line and 80 homers in 467 games in stops with the Blue Jays, Rangers, and Rays. Arencibia homered on the first pitch he saw in the majors back in 2010 and became the first player since 1900 to have a pair of home runs and four hits in his major league debut. However, his flawed approach didn't lead to success often enough for him to maintain a significant role in the majors. Jan 18 - 2:27 PM
