Report: Loretta to retire

Former Brewer Mark Loretta is expected to retire this week, according to ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick
Loretta, 38, was the Brewers’ seventh-round Draft pick in 1993 and played in Milwaukee from 1995-2002, when he was traded to the Astros for infielder Keith Ginter and Wayne Franklin. Loretta had served mostly in a utility role to that point in his career, but signed with the Padres for 2003 and had his best seasons as an everyday second baseman, hitting .314 in ’03 and then .335 in 2004, when he made his first All-Star team and finished ninth in National League MVP balloting. Loretta made another All-Star appearance in 2005 for the Red Sox.
The ESPN.com report said Loretta is expected to move into a front office job with an unspecified club.
