Outfielder Jason Bay, an 11-year veteran of five teams, can't see a scenario in which he comes back to play and thus will retire, he told Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca on Saturday.

Bay had an offer to continue playing in Japan, but the 35-year-old Canadian said it's time to focus on his family, which includes his wife, two daughters and a son.

The 2004 Rookie of the Year with the Pirates and a three-time All Star, Bay hit 222 career home runs. After a productive season and a half with the Red Sox, Bay signed a four-year, $66 million deal with the Mets in 2010.

But after seven straight years with at least 21 homers, Bay hit only 26 in three seasons with New York before he was cut.

He hit .204 with 11 homers and 20 RBIs in 68 games for the Mariners last year.
