Ryan Braun said in a radio interview Monday that while he's "not at a place where I'm ready to fully retire yet," he is "strongly leaning in that direction."
"Look, obviously I'm strongly leaning in that direction [retirement], but until I get to a point where I've completely made my mind up, I just don't see any sense in making it official at this point," Braun said. The 37-year-old also added that he "can't foresee a scenario" in which he played for a team other than the Brewers. Braun is staying in shape but said that he hasn't touched a bat or ball since the end of last season. Obviously, the odds are very high that we've seen the last of him in the big leagues.
