News: Quentin announced his retirement Friday, MLB.com reports.
Impact: "Over the past several days, it became clear to me that my injuries have taken too great of a physical toll for me to be able to perform at the level I expect from myself," Quentin said in a press release. Knee issues plagued the final couple years of Quentin's career, limiting him to 82 games in 2013 and 50 in 2014. The two-time All-Star, who compiled a .252/.347/.484 batting line with 154 home runs in 834 games, will be released from his minor league deal with Seattle.

News: Quentin is in the process of retiring, Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports reports.
Impact: It was a brutally quick fall-off for Quentin, who went from an .855 OPS in 2013 to .599 in 2014 (and both seasons injury-shortened). Health has been a long-term problem for Quentin, and that would certainly explain his decision to call it a career.
