Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that veteran Chad Tracy has decided to retire from baseball after a nine-year career in the big leagues. Tracy, 33, spent the spring with the Angels but they cut him despite a decent showing, as he hit .303 in 33 at-bats.

Tracy spent most of his time at the infield corners, but did play in the outfield corners early on in his career. He came into the Major Leagues with the Diamondbacks and spent six years with them before moving onto the Nationals, Cubs, and Marlins. In nearly 3,000 career plate appearances, Tracy hit .274 with 86 home runs and posted a .772 OPS.

    talk about having a career flying under the radar–remember the name and that’s it—sorry dude

    Almost 2 years younger than me and about $15 million richer. Racked up a quietly decent career there.

      Kudos to him. Solid career. We should all be so fortunate. As his starting role ended, he learned the art of the pinch hitter/corner sub. Love guys like him. Best wishes Chad.

    At the time I thought he had the stuff to compete for batting titles when he came up with the Diamondbacks, but his knees said no.
