Ivan Rodriguez will announce his retirement, Clark Spencer
of the Miami Herald reports. The announcement will take
place with the Rangers on Monday, the team he started his
career with.

Rodriguez, 40, spent last season with the Nationals, hitting
.218/.281/.323 with 2 homers in 137 plate appearances.
That does not do his HOF caliber career justice, however.
Pudge is a .296/.334/.464 career hitter with 2,844 career hits
and 311 homers. He's a 14-time All-Star, a 13-time Gold Glove
award winner, a seven-time Silver Slugger award winner, and
the 1999 AL MVP. He finished in the top 10 of the MVP voting
3 other times.

During his peak from 1998-2004, Rodriguez hit .322/.363/.538
with 162 homers. He played in 878 of 1,134 possible games,
roughly 125 per season. Among catchers, Pudge ranks 1st
all-time in hits (2,844), 1st in doubles (572), 7th in homers
(311), 5th in RBI (1,332), and 3rd in WAR (74.1). 13 of his 21
big league seasons were spent with the Rangers, but he also
played for the Marlins, Tigers, Yankees, Astros, and Nats.
Pudge helped Florida to the 2003 World Series title.

Rodriguez earned over $120MM during his career
according to Baseball-Reference.com.

So does his nickname imply anything about his typical nut scratching MLB "sport" belly?

One of the best catchers in our generation. He played clean and played the right way. First ballot HOF in my book.
