Kris Benson told Jon Paul Morosi of that he has decided to retire.
"I’m done," said Benson. "I decided pretty much after this past season that I wasn’t going to pursue anything. I’ve been putting way too much into it and not getting enough out of it, as far as the rehab, working out, training, and then not getting the type of results I expect from myself." Benson, now 36 years old, had a 5.14 ERA over three starts with the Diamondbacks last season, but didn't make an appearance after April due to more shoulder problems. The former 1996 No. 1 overall pick calls it a career with a 70-75 record to go along with a 4.42 ERA. Mon, Jan 10, 2011 11:14:00 PM
