Former Orioles second baseman Brian Roberts announced that he is planning to retire.
Roberts, 37, was released in August by the Yankees after hitting .237 in 91 games. Although he was apparently offered contracts by two teams, he turned the deals down. The two-time all star has been in decline for several years now, and it looks like he no longer can play at a high enough level to motivate him to stay in the majors. Roberts has had a great career with the Orioles, spanning over 14-years, and it wouldn't be surprising to see him eventually return back to baseball in some form.
