Five-time All-Star Troy Tulowitzki announced his retirement on Thursday after injuries again derailed another season.
Tulowitzki, 34, was able to play in just five games for the New York Yankees due to a calf injury. He went 2 for 11 with a homer and last played on April 3. He also missed all of last season and the final two-plus months of the 2017 season with a heel injury while with the Toronto Blue Jays.
“For as long as I can remember, my dream was to compete at the highest level as a Major League Baseball Player … to wear a big league uniform and play hard for my teammates and the fans,” Tulowitzki said in a statement issued through the Yankees. “I will forever be grateful for every day that I’ve had to live out my dream. It has been an absolute honor.”
Tulowitzki finishes his career as a .290 hitter with 225 homers and 780 RBIs in 1,291 games.
