From Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe comes word that veteran catcher Kevin Cash has decided to hang up his cleats for good and accept a job as a major league advance scout with the Blue Jays.
Cash, 34, played for the Jays, Rays, Red Sox, Yankees and Astros during an eight-year major league career, tallying 117 hits and 12 home runs in 714 plate appearances. He was a .245/.330/.409 career hitter in the minor leagues and a .183/.248/.278 career hitter in the bigs.
Cafardo says Cash is “one of those guys you always thought would wind up being a major league manager,” so that’s something to keep in mind for the future. For now, he’ll chart and monitor Toronto’s opponents.
