Jamey Carroll, who sat out last season after being released by the Nationals during spring training, has officially retired as a player at age 41 and joined the Pirates’ front office as a specialist assistant to the baseball operations staff.

Carroll didn’t make it to the majors until age 28, but had a 12-year career in which he hit .272 with a .349 on-base percentage and excellent strike-zone control as utility man.

He earned nearly $20 million while playing for six different teams and logging at least 1,500 innings at shortstop, second base, and third base.
