DETROIT (AP) — Magglio Ordonez has decided to call it a career.

The 38-year-old former Detroit Tigers and Chicago White Sox outfielder plans to announce his retirement Sunday before Detroit plays the New York Yankees.

The six-time All-Star struggled through 92 games last season with a surgically repaired right ankle, hitting a career-low .255 with five homers and 32 RBIs.

Ordonez was a career .309 hitter with 294 home runs and 1,236 RBIs over 15 seasons. He lifted Detroit into the 2006 World Series — the franchise’s first since 1984 — with a series-winning home run against Oakland. The native of Venezuela hit .363 the next season, becoming the first Tiger to win the American League batting title since Norm Cash in 1961, and finished second in league MVP voting.
