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.
During his time in MLB, Theriot spent seasons with the Cubs, Dodgers, Cardinals, and the 2012 World Series Champion Giants. He retires after 899 games, posting a career slash line of .281/.341/.350, 17 home runs, 257 RBI, and 911 hits.
Having not played for at least ten seasons, Theriot is NOT eligible for induction into the Baseball Hall of Fame.
