The Indians announced this evening that catcher Matt Treanor has announced his retirement from baseball.
Treanor was out of professional ball last year, but he signed a minor league deal with Cleveland over the winter. The 38-year-old had been in extended spring training after suffering a hamstring injury during Cactus League play.
Treanor will walk away from the game with a .221/.313/.305 batting line over nine seasons between the Marlins, Rangers, Royals, Dodgers, and Tigers. He appeared in the World Series with Texas in 2010.
