Yermin Mercedes, an American League League Rookie of the Month who was sent to Charlotte Triple-A after a fall in May and June, announced on her Instagram account Wednesday that she was retiring from baseball.
“First, I would like to thank God for giving me life for the fans without them, I was nothing,” Mercedes wrote on her Instagram account. “To my family for always understanding me and supporting me. . . I’m leaving baseball for a while God bless you. It’s finished. “
They were aware of the news said The White Sox but “have not received any official information from Yermin about his future plans.”
“I understand that you’re in Triple-A, that you’re getting a taste of the big leagues and that you can get emotional,” said manager Tony La Russa after the Sox 7-2 loss to the Twins. “I will reach out to him.
“It can be a little confusing. I’ll tell him he has a future in the league.
Mercedes, 28, who was elected to Charlotte on July 2, started with the Knights on Wednesday and was taken out with a pinch after two people. In 14 games, he hit .309 / .377 / .655 with four home runs.
The runner-up, Mercedes, hit .221 in May with two home runs and .159 in June for the Sox.
A fan of MLB fans and feelings in April who was 8 out of 8 in his first eight hit matches, Mercedes missed the catch signal and fired from the field 3-0 in May. He was called up by La Russa for lack of signals and for breaking one of the unwritten rules of baseball.
“Several times he has said how close we are,” La Russa said. “He knows I am one of his followers. I will reach him.
La Russa said he had many cases of underage players under stress.
” You have to find a reform and a way to support it,” he said. “Everyone is an individual. He’s got a place on the list, and as is often the case with rookies, you have to learn to get used to it. I know he can make those adjustments and hit the big leagues.
