Matt Antonelli announced yesterday that he is retiring.
Former Padres second baseman Matt Antonelli has retired from baseball, according to Chris Cotillo of MLBDailyDish.com (via Twitter). MLBTR has confirmed the news. The 28-year-old will become a student assistant coach at Wake Forest next season and finish up his degree. Antonelli, who was the No. 17 pick in the 2006 draft, spent the bulk of his career in the minors where he slashed .254/.365/.386 across parts of eight seasons.

After his breakout year in 2007, he never really hit at all. His OBP was always nice, but he could never hit enough to back it up.
