MLB Players retiring post season 2023 are Miguel Cabrera, Adam Wainwright, and Zack Greinke. In fact, over 10 players might decide to hang up their gloves after this year.
Here’s a rundown of MLB players who might be retiring this year: Miguel Cabrera Adam Wainwright Zack Greinke Joey Votto Brandon Crawford Clayton Kershaw Andrew McCutchen Evan Longoria Rich Hill Michael Brantley Johnny Cueto
Brandon Crawford might retire this season. He’s 36 and has been playing as the San Francisco Giants’ shortstop. This year might be the end of his time in Major League Baseball.
Miguel Cabrera is a talented right-handed batter for the Detroit Tigers. 2023 marks his 21st season with them and likely his last. He has collected over 3,000 hits, hit 500 home runs, and made 600 doubles.
Many thought Adam Wainwright, alongside his experienced teammate Yadier Molina, would retire after the recent season. But after a disappointing 2022, he decided to play another year. Adam has been with the St. Louis Cardinals for all his 17-year career.
Zack Greinke might consider retirement after this season, though he hasn’t confirmed it yet. Due to recent injuries and issues, people are speculating about his decision.
Joey Votto might retire this season, similar to Greinke, but he hasn’t set a retirement date yet. During the 2023 season, Joey Votto will turn 40. He has been an important player for the Cincinnati Reds for years. But in 2022, after having shoulder surgery, he didn’t play as well as usual.
At 35 years old, Clayton Kershaw is considering stepping away from baseball. After signing a one-year deal with the Dodgers for 2023, he’s set to be a free agent after this season.
After leaving in 2018, he played with different teams but wasn’t their leading player. At 36, he returned to the Pirates with a one-year deal, hinting that he might be looking to finish his career where it began.
At 37 years old, he agreed to a one-year contract with the Arizona Diamondbacks. However, if his health issues continue, he might consider ending his career.
Brantley’s contract ends after this year, and he’s approaching 36 years old. This could lead him to think about retirement instead of playing the following season.
Now 37, Cueto has a World Series win under his belt. If he stays fit and continues to play well in 2023, he might keep going. However, if health issues come up again, he might think about retiring this year.
