Padres P Philip Humber to retire
San Diego Padres pitcher has told the team that he will retire, according to the Associated Press.
Humber, 33, was recently informed by team management that he would not make San Diego’s 25-man roster to open the season. He has decided to end his career rather than taking a minor league assignment.
Humber made his major league debut with New York Mets in 2006 and has played in 97 career games, including 51 starts.
The peak of his career came with the Chicago White Sox in 2012, when he threw a perfect game against the Seattle Mariners.
Humber had a 0–8 record and 7.90 ERA with the Houston Astros in 2013 and hasn’t pitched in the majors since.
