Yankees’ Alfonso Soriano to retire next year?

This year is definitely going to be weird for the New York Yankees and their fans. They lost future Hall of Fame closer Mariano Rivera who called it a career not that long ago.

Then you have The Captain Derek Jeter, who recently announced that the 2014 baseball season will in fact be the last year that he plays. So who’s next to go? This team has dealt with a lot of players who have announced their retirement over the last decade.

They’ve dealt with it twice with Andy Pettitte. Now according to the New York Post, Alfonso Soriano may be the next New York Yankee to retire in 2014.

“It depends on how I feel. If I am healthy I will play [in 2015]. If not, I will let it go. It depends on how I feel.” Soriano told the New York Post.

I couldn’t help but read that in Soriano’s accent in my head. Anyways, Alfonso Soriano will turn 39 years old in July and is entering his 14th year in the league. So we all know retirement is just around the corner.
