Nationals' Mike Cameron Announces Retirement After 17 Seasons

Mike Cameron is retiring after 17 seasons in the major leagues, according to the Associated Press.

After spending the 2011 season split between Boston and Florida, Cameron signed a minor league contract with the Washington Nationals in December. He was expected to have a good shot at the big-league roster, but instead the 39-year-old announced his retirement today. Nats position players report to spring training in six days.

Cameron played for eight teams in his 17 seasons, accumulating 278 home runs, 968 RBIs and 297 steals. He batted .249 and won three outfield Gold Gloves.

The Nats are now likely to start the season with Jayson Werth in center field, though 19-year-old phenom Bryce Harper may crack the major league squad before long.
