Vance Wilson Retires

Catcher Vance Wilson exercised an out clause in his contract and retired, reports Bob Dutton of the Kansas City Star.  Perhaps he'll move on to a coaching gig.

Wilson, 37, hit .270/.342/.461 in 229 Double A plate appearances for the Royals' affiliate last year after missing two years with a pair of elbow surgeries.  He played eight seasons for the Mets and Tigers, earning about $4.9MM along the way.
