Rolen played 92 games for the Cincinnati Reds this year, hitting .245/.318/398 with eight home runs. In the 2012 National League Division Series, though, he made a critical error in Game 3 that led to a Reds loss, and he was the last out of the series in Game 5, striking out with the tying run on first.
Over his career, Rolen made the All-Star team seven times, was voted the Rookie of the Year award in 1997, took home eight Gold Gloves, and won a World Series championship with the 2006 St. Louis Cardinals.
The 37-year-old Rolen has had injury problems throughout his career, playing fewer than 130 games in nine of his 17 seasons. His best season was 2004 with the Cardinals, when he hit .314/.409/.598, with a career-high 34 home runs and a Gold Glove.
