Edgar Renteria Leaning Toward Retirement

Edgar Renteria doesn't plan to play in 2012 and is leaning toward retirement, agent Barry Meister told Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. However, Renteria won't officially file for retirement just yet in case an opportunity emerges later on.

Renteria obtained offers from two NL teams this offseason, but they were for minor league deals, and he decided to pass. The Royals considered the 16-year-veteran earlier on in the offseason, but it's not clear if they made him an offer.

Renteria spent the 2011 season with the Reds, posting a .251/.306/.348 line in 333 plate appearances as a shortstop and second baseman. He owns two Gold Gloves, two Silver Sluggers, 140 home runs and a .286/.343/.398 line as a Major Leaguer and has earned upwards of $85MM since breaking in with the 1996 Marlins. MLBTR's Tim Dierkes examined retirement candidates around MLB last month.
