Twins OF Torii Hunter announces retirement from baseball
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Twins outfielder Torii Hunter has retired from baseball, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

After logging 19 professional seasons, Hunter will rightfully call it a career as a Twin, with whom he spent 12 years. Over the course of the last nearly two decades, he racked up five All-Star game appearances and nine Gold Glove Awards. While he was noted for his spectacular catches in the outfield, he wasn't too shabby with a bat either, posting a .277/.331/.461 slash line with 353 homers, 1,391 RBI, 1,296 runs, and 195 stolen bases.

Twins OF Torii Hunter homers, platest hree in losing effort
by Jason Lempert | CBS Sports Staff

Twins outfielder Torii Hunter went 2 for 5 with his 20th homer, three RBI and two runs against the Angels on Thursday.

At age 40, Hunter's now reached 20 homers for the first time since 2011 and the 11th time in his career. Still, the early success that Hunter achieved faded away in a midseason slump, with his OPS dropping from .792 at the end of June to a low point of .686 on the second day of September.

He's heated up recently, though -- Hunter's on a six-game hitting streak and has racked up 15 hits (including three doubles and two homers) in his last 37 at-bats. That's a .405 clip. Hunter's surely been cut loose in the majority of shallower formats by now, and it's worth grabbing him while he's hot.

Twins OF Torii Hunter goes yard twice Saturday to end slide
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

So much for the old slump for an old ballplayer. Twins outfielder Torii Hunter broke out in style Saturday against the host Brewers.

The 39-year-old Hunter doubled and mashed solo home runs in the sixth and ninth innings for his first multi-hit game since June 4, sweetening his slash line in the process to .266/.325/.437. He has blasted off 10 times this year.

Hunter entered with one hit in six of his last seven games, but batting .143 (7-for-49) in his last 14 games. He believes those statistics to be deceiving.

"The last couple of weeks, I've been hitting the ball well," Hunter told MLB.com. "The numbers don't show it, but it's beyond the numbers. I just have to keep that same feeling. When you have days like today, you just have to enjoy it."

Twins RF Torii Hunter continues cool-off after sizzling stretch
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Twins right fielder Torii Hunter hasn't collapsed completely since an outrageous tear in late April and early May had him defying Father Time. But he has certainly slowed down considerably despite his current four-game hitting streak.

The 39-year-old Hunter remains a consistent offensive contributor. He has hit safely in 20 of his last 26 games, but amazingly has only one multi-hit game during that stretch. Five of those hitless games have occurred since June 8, after which he is batting just .158 (6-for-38).

His mini-slump has weakened his slash line to a still-respectable .262/.322/.409.

Twins RF Torii Hunter with three hits, three-run home run Thursday
by Jason Lempert | CBS Sports Staff

Twins right fielder Torii Hunter had himself a good day at the plate in Thursday's 8-4 win over the Red Sox. Hunter had three hits in four at-bats, including his eighth home run of the season.

Hunter took a Steven Wright knuckleball into the Green Monster seats in left field for a three-run blast in the top of the fifth inning. It was Hunter's 200th career home run as a Twin.

"Two hundred with the Twins, that's longevity. You got to play a long time to do that," Hunter said. "I'm happy about that, to go out there and have 200 home runs in this uniform. One behind Gaetti. And the Rat was a really good player with the Twins. Just to have a chance to pass him up or tie him would be awesome."

Hunter also singled and scored twice as he raised his batting average to .282 with the three-hit performance.

"That knuckleball, you don't know what you're going to get," Hunter said, per MLB.com. "It's like a box of chocolates. Either you're going to be good, or you're going to [struggle]."
