According to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports, right-handed pitcher Danys Baez is set to hang up his cleats and call it quits at just 34 years of age.
Baez bounced around in his ten year career playing with six different teams and earned nearly $37 million in contracts. The 34 year old received the biggest bonus in Cleveland Indians history, notes Ben Badler of Baseball America, getting $4.5 million to sign out of Cuba back in 1999.
In his career, Baez, 34, posted a 4.25 ERA across 697 innings of work with the six different teams with an unimpressive 6.5 K/9 and 3.7 BB/9 (1.75 strikeout-to-walk ratio).
