Vance Wilson Rumors

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.
