Jason Bartlett has informed the Minnesota Twins that he has decieded to retire from baseball.

Bartlett was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left ankle sprain and was on a rehabilitation stint at Fort Myers when he decided he was abandoning his plans to return to the majors.

At the end of spring training the Twins gave Bartlett a roster spot with a salary of $1 million despite his less than stellar spring performance.

Bartlett began his major league career with Minneota in 2004 and bounced around to Tampa Bay and later San Diego before rejoining the Twins this year. He will end his 10 year career with a .270/.336/.366 line with 31 home run and 435 runs scored in 892 games.
