13-Year Veteran Pitcher Announces Retirement

Calling it a career.

13-year veteran pitcher Jake McGee has announced his retirement.

McGee has spent the last couple of seasons bouncing from team to team, but he was once one of the best left-handed relievers in all of baseball.

The thirty-six-year-old finishes his career with a 3.71 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, 79 saves, and 613 strikeouts across 572. 1 innings of work. 

His best seasons came with the Tampa Bay Rays, who he spent six seasons pitching for. He also pitched four seasons with the Colorado Rockies, two with the San Francisco Giants and one each with the Los Angeles Dodgers, Washington Nationals and Milwaukee Brewers.

McGee was a former fifth-round pick by the Rays in the 2004 MLB Draft
