Ivan ‘Pudge’ Rodriguez To Retire From Baseball

NEW YORK (AP) — A person familiar with the planning tells The Associated Press that Ivan Rodriguez plans to announce his retirement Monday.

A 14-time All-Star and the 1999 American League MVP, Rodriguez plans to make the announcement in Arlington, Texas, where he spent the first 12 of his 21 major league seasons with the Rangers. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not made an announcement.

Now 40, Rodriguez spent the last two seasons with the Washington Nationals. He decided not to accept a contract offer from the Kansas City Royals, who were interested after Salvador Perez injured a knee and needed surgery.
