MILWAUKEE —

Former Brewers outfielder Geoff Jenkins will announce his retirement on Friday.

Jenkins has scheduled a press conference before Milwaukee's game against Pittsburgh to officially end his 11-year career. Jenkins played 10 of his 11 seasons with Milwaukee and made the 2003 NL All-Star team. He won a World Series title his final year with Philadelphia in 2008 and finished his career hitting .275 with 221 homers and 733 RBIs in 1,349 games.

General manager Doug Melvin says they're honored to let Jenkins retire as a Brewer after being drafted by the club, making his major league debut with the team and ranking among the franchise leaders in most offensive categories.
