Josh Willingham opts to retire after 11 seasons in the majors
by Jeff Borzello | College Basketball Writer

Veteran outfielder Josh Willingham told ESPN on Monday he is retiring after 11 seasons in the majors. Willingham added he received a substantial offer from a contending club this offseason, but he still opted to retire.

"After praying on my decision many times and talking to my wife, my father and ex-players who have gone through the same process toward the end of their careers, I have decided to retire,'' Willingham said. "I felt like it wouldn't be fair to myself, and more importantly to the team that was paying me a lot of money to perform at a high level, if there was a chance my dedication would waver -- particularly as the season got longer. I'm honored to have played for as many years as I have, and I feel even luckier to walk away on my own terms instead of having the decision made for me.''

Willingham spent the 2014 season with the Twins and Royals. He also played for the Marlins, Nationals and Athletics in his career. Willingham hit .253 with 195 home runs, 216 doubles and 632 RBI in 1,147 games. Willingham was one of three AL outfielders in 2012 to win the Silver Slugger award.

Twins, Torii Hunter have 'common interest'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Veteran outfielder Torii Hunter said Saturday he favors the Twins in free agency and he could make a decision soon about which team he signs with, according to the Pioneer Press.

"(Twins general manager) Terry Ryan and I have talked several times, and there's definitely a common interest there, for sure," Hunter said.

The Twins drafted Hunter in the first round of the 1993 draft. He appeared in games for Minnesota from 1997-2007 before playing for the Angels and Tigers. 

"I would come over to win," he said of his reasons for potentially returning to Minnesota. "All that stuff everybody talks about, 'a great guy in the clubhouse,' that's extra -- that's not No. 1. The No. 1 thing is look at my numbers. They're still the same, one of the most consistent hitters in baseball over my career.

"But sometimes I guess my character and clubhouse presence and just that fire that I have, I think, overshadows a lot. But no matter what, if I didn't put up those numbers, I don't care what kind of personality or drive you have, not many people are going to want you. The only reason you're going to want me is because of my play."
