Former Yankees Pitcher (Known for Historic Performance) Calls it a Career

A right-handed pitcher, known for his remarkable performance, has announced his retirement after a 13-year career in Major League Baseball. Spending the majority of his career with Cleveland, where he earned three All-Star selections and secured two Cy Young Awards, he remains the sole recipient of this prestigious honor in the organization’s history.

In the latter part of his career, spanning four years, the pitcher made notable stops with the Rangers, Yankees, Rays, and Red Sox. However, his final season in 2023 with the Boston Red Sox saw him struggle, posting a 7.04 ERA in 15 appearances, primarily as a starter, but later transitioning to a bullpen role. Despite his challenges, he managed to strike out 42 batters in 55 innings.

During his stint with the New York Yankees in 2021, he faced setbacks due to a shoulder injury, limiting him to only 16 starts for the season. Nonetheless, his time in New York was highlighted by an extraordinary no-hitter against the Rangers.

In the latter years of his career, the pitcher grappled with arm issues, notably spending time on the injured list in 2023 due to right shoulder inflammation. At 37 years old, he has decided to bring his illustrious career to a close.
