Aaron Miles To Retire

Veteran Aaron Miles is set to retire according to the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate, writes Matthew Pouliot of Circling The Bases.  Miles, 35, hit .235/.297/.338 in 18 games for Albuquerque this season.

The infielder hooked on with the Dodgers in February of last year on a minor league deal.  Miles would go on to make the big league roster and make 490 plate appearances with a .275/.314/.346 slash line.  The veteran's agent, David Schwartz, told MLBTR in April that his client hoped to play in 2012 and in May he hooked on again with the Dodgers.

For his career, Miles hit .281/.320/.352 across nine big league seasons with the White Sox, Rockies, Cardinals, Cubs, and Dodgers.  Baseball-Reference pegs his career earnings at roughly $8.77MM through 2011.
