Seattle, WA, United States (4E Sports) – After an 11-year Major League career, outfielder Jason Bay is reportedly set on hanging his bat and glove.
In a television interview, Bay said he can’t see a scenario in which he comes back to play. He has not filed any official papers but plans to do so in the next few days.
The 35-year-old Bay spent his 11-year career with five different clubs and was released by the Mariners on Aug. 6.
He had signed with Seattle as a free agent prior to last season after being released by the Mets.
After debuting with the San Diego Padres, Bay spent six seasons with the Pittsburgh Pirates, winning the National League Rookie of the Year Award in 2004. He was an All-Star the following two seasons and in 2009 with the Red Sox.
Bay played in 1,278 games, hitting 222 homers and driving in 754 runs with a career .266 batting average.
