Gil Meche said in a statement Tuesday that his decision to retire was based on the need for more surgery on his right shoulder.
"As a competitor my entire life this is the hardest decision that I've ever faced, but it's not fair to me, my family or the Kansas City Royals that I attempt to pitch anymore," the 32-year-old wrote in a statement. "I came into this game as a starting pitcher and unfortunately my health, more accurately, my shoulder, has deteriorated to the point where surgery would be the only option and at this stage of my life." He is leaving $12 million on the table. Tue, Jan 18, 2011 01:09:00 PM
