Joe Thatcher has decided to retire from baseball.
"Yeah, I'm not Derek Jeter or Big Papi [David Ortiz] so there wasn't a farewell tour or anything," Thatcher told the Kokomo Tribune. "I've decided to retire. It's hard to say still and it hasn't really sunk in yet that I'm a former big leaguer, but I'm happy with it, I'm comfortable with it." Thatcher, who turned 35 last month, had a nice career as a lefty specialist, posting a 3.38 ERA and 270/91 K/BB ratio over 260 2/3 innings across nine major league seasons.
