At about 11:00PM CST, it was called. Chris Cotillo, on Twitter (@ChrisCotillo), reported that former San Francisco Giants’ utility infielder Ryan Theriot officially retired. Citing that he was “ready for a change,” the 34-year-old Baton Rouge native decided to hang up the cleats after 8 Major League Seasons.
