February 19, 2021

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Infielder Brian Dozier on Thursday announced his retirement from baseball after nine seasons, the first seven of which were spent in a Minnesota Twins uniform.

Dozier, 33, had stints with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Washington Nationals and New York Mets to conclude his career.

He batted .244 with 192 homers and 561 RBIs in 1,144 career games.

Dozier batted .248 with 593 runs scored, 167 homers and 491 RBIs in 955 games with the Twins from 2012-18. He competed in the Home Run Derby in 2014 and was an All-Star the following season.

His best season came in 2016, when he belted a career-high 42 homers to tie Hall of Famer Rogers Hornsby for the second-highest single-season total by a second baseman in Major League Baseball history. Dozier also had a career-best 99 RBIs in 2016.

Dozier won a World Series title with the Nationals in 2019.
