Boston Red Sox’s Steve Pearce considering retirement

BOSTON—Red Sox first baseman Steve Pearce is contemplating retirement after 13 seasons, he said Saturday.

Pearce, the reigning World Series MVP, has been limited to just 29 games this season due to injuries. After spending the weekend with the team in Boston, he will head home to Florida and spend time with his family as he assesses his future over the winter.

If this is the end for Pearce, he’ll walk away with no regrets.

“I’ve accomplished a lot,” Pearce said. “I’m 36. I’ll be 37 next year. I’ve grinded my whole career and I can lay my head down at night knowing I gave everything I had. We’ll see what the future holds.”

Kind of the story of the Red Sox this season in a nutshell, isn’t it?
