2015 Record: 78-84
#34 David Ortiz
Nov 17: Ortiz will retire at the end of the 2016 season, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports. It's important to note Ortiz has not yet confirmed the news, however considering he will turn 40 years-old Wednesday, it wouldn't be a surprising development. The designated hitter just finished recording his third straight 30+ home run, 100+ RBI season so it's clear his skills at the plate haven't diminished much with age, but he's played just 20 games at first base over the last three years and he vehemently expressed disinterest in seeing more time at that position earlier this season. As long as Ortiz stays healthy, he should be in line for another stellar season at the plate.
