MIAMI — Veteran catcher Francisco Cervelli announced his retirement Saturday after a 13-year major league career.
The 34-year-old Cervelli played in only 16 games this year for the Miami Marlins before his season was cut short by the latest in a long string of concussions. He also had concussions in 2018 and 2019.
Early in his career, Cervelli won a World Series championship as a backup with the 2009 Yankees, appearing in 42 games that season.
