Nick Johnson retires from baseball

Once a on-base machine, Nick Johnson has retired from baseball. Johnson, 34, had struggled to stay healthy over the last three seasons.

Johnson appeared in only 38 games with the Orioles last season while struggling with wrist problems.

The biggest asset Johnson brought to big-league clubs was his ability to get on base. He finishes his 10-year career with a .268/.399/.441 batting line. Johnson’s best season came in 2006 with Washington, when he hit .290/.428/.520 with 23 homers, 77 RBI, 100 runs and 10 stolen bases.
