Dodger News: Kristopher Negrón Announces His Retirement

Less than 24 hours after we reported that the Dodgers released infielder/outfielder Kristopher Negrón, Negrón announces via Twitter that he has made the decision to retire.

Negrón, 33, was acquired by the Dodgers on July 29th in a deal with the Mariners in exchange for infielder Daniel Castro. After being acquired, Negrón hit .259/.298/.389 with 1 double, 2 home runs, 7 RBIs, and 9 runs scored in 30 games while spending time defensively at second base, third base, shortstop, left field, center field, and right field.

Negrón’s professional baseball career began when he was drafted by the Red Sox in the 7th round of the 2006 Draft from Cosumnes River College in Sacramento, California. He made his major league debut in 2012 with the Reds and has been bouncing between the majors and minors in multiple organizations since. Negrón finishes with a career .221/.291/.336 batting line along with 14 doubles, 1 triple, 9 home runs, 32 RBIs, 10 stolen bases, and 47 runs scored in 170 games between the Reds, Diamondbacks, Mariners, and Dodgers.

We would like to congratulate Kristopher Negrón on a successful baseball career and wish him nothing but the absolute best as he transitions to the next chapter in his life. We hope you enjoy your retirement and look forward to seeing what is in store for you.
