Davis (hip) announced his retirement from baseball Thursday.

The 35-year-old calls it quits on a 13-year career spent with the Rangers and Orioles. He'll retire with 295 homers (including 53 in his All-Star season back in 2013) and 1,160 hits. While he was one of the league's best power hitters in the middle of the last decade, he's struggled significantly since the start of the 2018 season, hitting .169/.251/.299 over that span, so the decision comes as little surprise. Per Jon Heyman of MLB Network, he'll still be paid the $23 million remaining on his seven-year, $161 million deal next season despite his retirement, though a portion of that money will be deferred. Davis never saw game action in 2021 while dealing with back and hip injuries.
