Recently Retired Players

+ Major Leaguers & Minor Leaguers
  • The list below consists of players who have recently voluntarily retired from baseball with a corresponding announcement. Most players retire from professional baseball involuntarily and the transaction will not be officially recorded and therefore will not be displayed on this page. TBC assumes retirement (but does not record as a transaction) after 2+ years of inactivity for the purpose of a player's official status.
