Jorge Posada, Orlando Cabrera, Craig Counsell, and Adam Everett retired this offseason, as MLBTR's free agent tracker shows. Which other unsigned free agents may be leaning toward calling it a career?
- Milton Bradley: The Mariners released him on May 16th, and we haven't heard anything since aside from off-the-field issues. I've heard that while he has not retired, as of now it does not look like Bradley will play in 2012.
- J.D. Drew: About a week ago, Jon Heyman wrote that Drew is "very likely to retire."
- Jason Kendall: In July, we learned that Kendall was out of the picture for 2012 after re-tearing two tendons in his right rotator cuff. Kendall's career might be over, wrote Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe at the time.
- Derrek Lee: This month Joel Sherman of the New York Post suggested a kind of "forced retirement" is possible for Lee, who has reportedly been picky so far this offseason.
- Jason Varitek: The catcher is mulling retirement, wrote Scott Lauber of the Boston Herald this month.
- Javier Vazquez: Reports this month continue to indicate that Vazquez will retire. The 35-year-old would be finishing on a high note.
- Tim Wakefield: He told John A. Torres of Florida Today that retirement is possible, though the knuckleballer hopes to return to the Red Sox.
