Baseball is an ongoing cycle. Every year, there are rookie players that take the stage, everyday regulars that perform to expectations or underachieve, and players that decline due to either age or injury. For players on that decline, it’s only a matter of time before their respective teams make a corresponding move because of their problems on the mound or at the plate.

Every year, we say greats and fan favorites hang up the cleats whether it’s because it’s their time to retire or because they realize that they won’t get a starting job on any squad. It’s sad having to say goodbye to players in any sport but it’s for the better. In this case, these ten select players need to call it quits before next season ends if not sooner.
