New York Yankees Jorge Posada set to Retire
The New York Yankees say Jorge Posada is going to call it quits, and is set to announce his retirement Tuesday at Yankee Stadium.
The 40-year-old five-time All-Star will end his 17-year big league career with the team that drafted him rather than pursue another team.
Posada became a free agent after completing the final year of a four-year, $52 million contract.
He helped the Yankees win five World Series titles during his time in New York. For his career, Posada hit .273 with 275 home runs and 1,065 RBIs.
