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.
