It may not have been on par with the disappearance of Casey Kasum, but the lack of known whereabouts of infielder Chris Getz certainly was puzzling.
After being designated for assignment by the Toronto Blue Jays, the 30-year old cleared waivers and was outrighted to Triple-A Buffalo. That was three days ago. The problem was, Getz never reported to Buffalo. Speculation was that the 7-year pro was going to retire, but nothing came down as official until Friday morning, from MLB Daily Dish’s Chris Cotillo.
Confirmed: Chris Getz is retiring after not reporting to #BlueJays AAA affiliate.
