Arthur Rhodes said during the Cardinals’ World Series run in October that he planned to play one more season before retiring and according to Anthony Andro of FOX Sports Southwest, the 42-year-old left-hander is close to deciding where he’ll pitch in 2012.
Rhodes was released by the Rangers last August after posting a 4.81 ERA over 32 appearances, but latched on with the Cardinals in August and pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings during the postseason. The Cardinals would reportedly like to bring him back, but he has also drawn interest from the Mariners this offseason.
Rhodes has a 4.08 ERA over his 20 seasons in the majors, but the great majority of his success has come after the age of 30. The southpaw has a 3.07 ERA since 2001.
