Report: 4-time All-Star Dellin Betances retires
Dellin Betances has called it a career.
The four-time All-Star pitcher has retired from baseball, according to the New York Post's Jon Heyman.
Betances had been pitching in the Los Angeles Dodgers organization but was recently released after posting an ugly 10.26 ERA in the minors.
The 34-year-old established himself as a dominant bullpen arm for the New York Yankees from 2014-2017. Betances posted a 2.11 ERA, 2.21 FIP, and 14.4 K/9 in 306 2/3 innings during that stretch.
He only appeared in 17 games from 2019-2021 for the Yankees and New York Mets due to numerous injuries, including ones to his throwing shoulder and Achilles tendon.
Betances reportedly retires with a 21-23 record, 2.53 ERA, and 14.4 K/9 in 394 1/3 career innings.
