From the New York Daily News‘ Andy Martino:
Jorge Posada is expected to hold a news conference at Yankee Stadium early this week, likely Tuesday, to formally announce his retirement, according to a person familiar with the plans.
The news comes as no surprise. Posada headed into this offseason with the intention of continuing his career, but his mind seemed to change as interest in him failed to grow and he confirmed to MLB.com’s Adam Berry last week that he was done for good.
Posada, 40, finishes with a .273/.374/.474 career batting line, 1,664 career hits and 275 career home runs.
