Jonathan Fixler retires

Via our buddy Greg Rajan, we learn that catcher Jonathan Fixler has retired.

Fixler, the Astros' 19th Round pick in 2007, hit .229/.308/.402 in five minor-league seasons, including five games in 2011. Fixler was suspended on August 4, 2010 for use of PEDs.

Brian Esposito has returned to Corpus to take his spot, and Jeff Keppinger has moved up to OKC.
