Lowell Plans To Retire After This Season

Mike Lowell said today that he will almost certainly retire from baseball when his deal expires at the end of the year, tweets Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe.

The BoSox agreed to deal the 36-year-old to the Rangers for catcher Max Ramirez back in December.  However, the deal was called off when Texas discovered that Lowell had a torn ligament in his right thumb.

For his major league career, Lowell has hit .280/.343/.468 with 218 HRs.
