Turn away from Jesus, Pedro Alvarez




The Associated Press reports:

Oakland Athletics prospect Grant Desme is retiring from baseball to enter the
priesthood. Desme was recently selected the 2009 Arizona Fall League MVP and was
considered one of the top prospects in Oakland's system. The 23-year-old outfielder
batted .288 with 31 homers, 89 RBIs and 40 stolen bases in 131 games at Class-A
Kane County and Stockton in 2009. He then hit .315 with a league-leading 11 home
runs and 27 RBIs in 27 games in the fall league.
