Miles has opted to retire rather than toil away in the minors, CBS Sports reports.
ANALYSIS
Miles finishes a nine-year career in which he batted .281/.320/.352 in 2,827 at-bats. He made a reported $8.8 million in his career, but with retired players being fully vested in the MLB pension plan at 10+ years of service, perhaps Miles will reconsider at some point.

With three homers and four stolen bases, it wasn't much of a fantasy season for Miles, but his .275/.314/.346 line for the Dodgers did add some value last year as injuries to the likes of Casey Blake and Juan Uribe allowed Miles to amass a surprising 454 at-bats, even finding himself in the three-hole on occasion. Miles was a free agent at this writing, and he shouldn't have a problem finding a job on some team's bench in 2012.
Miles has been hanging on for years, and his 139 at-bats was his lowest total since 2003. As a pinch-hitter, he had just four singles in 29 at-bats and didn't drive in a run, so his only remaining value is his versatility. As he's still just 34, some team will probably throw him a bone in 2011, but he has few skills on offense to help a fantasy team.
Injuries derailed his 2009, but Miles has good contact skills and typically hits for a decent average. He's also versatile defensively, capable of playing anywhere in the infield and also at the corner-outfield spots if needed. The Cubs traded him to Oakland this offseason where he'll likely fill a utility role.
Thanks to the ability to play several positions, Miles was a valuable member of the Cardinals during his three years in St. Louis. Unfortunately, with little power or speed, his fantasy value is limited by his batting average, which usually is nowhere near the .317 he hit in 2008. Surprisingly, the Cardinals non-tendered Miles in December. He'll compete with Mike Fontenot for the starting second base job, but will likely play a similar utility role for the Cubs after inking a two-year deal this winter.
With David Eckstein battling numerous injuries and Adam Kennedy ineffective, Miles was pressed into 133 games at five positions. He doesn't give his fantasy owners much beyond his batting average, which could just as easily be the .263 he posted in 2006. He's back in a utility role with the Cards again in 2008, so Miles should provide more value than the typical $1 middle infielder because he always finds a way to rack up a significant number of at-bats.
Miles’ greatest contribution in 2006 was playing 39 games at shortstop when David Eckstein was hurt. With Adam Kennedy now on board, Miles will be firmly entrenched as the third middle infielder in 2007. Expect more of the same in 2007.
Miles started 2005 as the Colorado's everyday second baseman before playing himself out of a job by season's end. He could win the starting second base job after being traded to St. Louis, but we're not high on his chances given his low power, poor plate discipline and average glove.
Miles solidified his role as the Rockies starting second baseman with a good rookie campaign, but he'll need to improve his on-base skills. His .324 OBP in 2004 puts him in the lower half among leadoff hitters, and his 12 steals leave something to be desired, especially from a little guy with no power. With big bats and a little Coors magic behind him, if Miles can get on base, 100 runs are not out of the question in 2005.
Mighty-mite Miles (he's 5-8) put together a tidy season at Triple-A, hitting .304/.351/.445, and has little left to prove in the minors. Miles should get his first chance at a regular big league job in 2004, and he'll get it in Coors Field with the Rockies.
