Randy Winn Retires

Randy Winn has retired after 13 season in the big leagues, according to Janie McCauley of the Associated Press (on Twitter). The Orioles signed Winn to a minor league this past offseason then released the 36-year-old this week.

Postseason baseball eluded Winn throughout his career and last year was no exception. The Yankees, who made it to the ALCS in 2010, signed him before the season, but designated him for assignment after he struggled. The Cardinals picked him up last summer, only to miss the postseason. Winn also played for the Giants (between their recent trips to the World Series), the Mariners (after their most recent playoff appearance) and the Rays (before they sniffed the playoffs).

Winn retires with a .284/.343/.416 line, 1759 hits, 110 homers and 215 stolen bases. He earned over $42MM in his career, according to Baseball-Reference.
