Every few weeks someone checks in with Scott Rolen to see if he plans to play in 2013 or retire after 17 seasons in the majors, and the 37-year-old third baseman still isn’t sure.
His agent told John Fay of the Cincinnati Enquirer that Rolen needs more time to make a decision.
Fay speculates that if Rolen does decide to play in 2013 the Reds would be interested in re-signing him, but it would likely have to be for a part-time role given that they’re committed to Todd Frazier taking over as the full-time third baseman.
Dusty Baker often played Rolen over Frazier this year despite Rolen hitting just .245 with eight homers and a .716 OPS in 92 games.
