11-Year Colorado Rockies Veteran Pitcher Announces Retirement

After 11 seasons in the Colorado Rockies' organization, he's calling it a career.

Pitcher Scott Oberg has announced his retirement.

Oberg dealt with blood clots throughout the course of his career and ultimately decided that he could not continue his career anymore.

However, the thirty-two-year-old has been a very strong presence in the clubhouse for the Rockies' pitching staff and, as a result, he has accepted a part-time position with the team.

Oberg ends his five-year major league career with a solid 3.85 ERA, 1.32 WHIP, and 234 strikeouts over 257.1 innings of work.

Happy retirement to Oberg and best of luck to him in this next step of his career.
