Todd Wellemeyer Retires

Todd Wellemeyer has announced his retirement from baseball effective immediately, reports MLB.com's Carrie Muskat (on Twitter). He had signed a one-year, non-guaranteed deal with the Cubs this past winter.

Wellemeyer, 32, had been slowed by a hip injury this spring, though he made his first start with the Cubs' Triple-A affiliate earlier this week (eight hit and four runs in 3 2/3 innings). He pitched for the Giants last season, but was released after posting a 5.68 ERA in 58 2/3 innings. Wellemeyer was originally drafted by the Cubs back in 2000, and retires with a 4.83 career ERA in parts of eight seasons with five teams. Baseball-Reference.com lists his career earnings at $7.67MM.
