Jason Bartlett has told the Minnesota Twins that he intends to retire after 10 seasons in the big leagues, according to Mike Beradino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
Rob Anthony, assistant general manager, told Beradino that Bartlett informed the team that "he wants to move on."
Bartlett, 34, only appeared in three games for the Twins this season before he was put on the disabled list with a sprained ankle on April 7. He was working his way back with Class-A Fort Myers when he made the decision.
He was an integral part of the Tampa Bay Rays' World Series run in 2008 and recorded his best statistical year the following season when he put together a .320/.389/.490 slash line with 14 home runs, 66 RBIs and 30 stolen bases.
Bartlett also spent two seasons with the San Diego Padres, along with the Twins and Rays.
