Magglio Ordonez Admits He's Nearing Retirement

Magglio Ordonez is 38 years old and still out of work -- and if you know your Spanish, you know that this tweet means he's about ready to give up.

"Close to retiring," Ordonez says.

Ordonez re-upped with the Detroit Tigers last winter for his seventh season with the team, signing a one-year deal worth $10 million. But he was tremendously disappointing in 2011, hitting just .255 with five homers, and as such, he's yet to get an offer for 2012 from Detroit or anyone else.

If Ordonez walks away now, he'll leave behind an impressive major league career -- he's compiled a .309 career average, 294 home runs and 1,236 RBIs in 15 seasons. He was the runner-up for AL MVP in 2007.
