Brewers 3B Aramis Ramirez likely to retire after 2015 season
"I don't want a multi-year deal. I wasn't looking forward to that. I'm comfortable here," he said, per the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel.
"I'm going to play this year and probably be done after this year. I don't know if I want to play after this year. I think this is it. We'll see what happens, but I don't think I'll play after this year.
"It's more of a family thing. I've got three kids, I've been playing for a long time, been away for a long time. Sometimes it's just time to do something else."
Brewers general manager Doug Melvin said he is not surprised by Ramirez's announcement.
"We anticipated that anyways," he said. "It's not stunning. I think when he accepted our deal to come back that was probably a message. He didn't go out on the market. He's always said it's never been about the money."
Ramirez made the All-Star team in 2014 for the third time in his career. He has a career .285 average, .344 on-base percentage, .496 slugging percentage and .840 OPS.
