Looks like Grant Hogue retired

Another one of my favorite players in the organization, 2009 35th Round pick Grant Hogue, tweeted out this morning what looks to be his farewell to the organization.

I want to thank the Astros for an unforgettable 5 yrs. Made friendships and memories I will cherish forever. Time to start that job search!
In four seasons (322 games, 1271 plate appearances), Hogue hit .289/.361/.357 and was an 11-time Man of the Match recipient. In 43 games last season (limited due to injury) at Lancaster, he hit .361/.421/.458 with 22K:17BB. Hogue was kind enough back in 2009 to send in a picture with Aaron Bray and B.J. Hyatt with an official Astros County Proof of Citizenship.

Update: It actually looks as though Hogue retired
