Brian Fuentes calls it a career

Reliever Brian Fuentes, who briefly played for the Cardinals last season before suddenly abandoning the team for unspecified reasons, announced yesterday that he has decided to retire. Fuentes told the Merced Sun-Star, his hometown paper, that he left the Redbirds because it was the farthest from his family that he ever played and he simply missed them too much to continue.
