Werth announces retirement from MLB after 15 years
Jayson Werth is ending his comeback attempt.
The veteran outfielder was not willing to use the word retirement, but he did say he was finished playing professional baseball.
"I'm done ... whatever you want to call it," Werth told Fancred Sports on Wednesday.
His announcement came while he was on the seven-day disabled list with the Mariners' affiliate Triple-A Tacoma. His last game was on June 8.
Werth became a free agent in November 2017 by the Nationals and signed a minor-league deal with Seattle in March.
During his 15-year MLB career, Werth finished with a slash line of .267/.360/.455 with 229 home runs and 799 RBIs in 1,583 games. He helped the Phillies win the World Series in 2008 and was an All-Star in 2009.
Werth told Fancred Sports he has "no regrets" with his career.
