REMEMBER JEFF KARSTENS? SOMETHING HAPPENED
Jeff Karstens was a good pitcher for the Yankees, but they just didn't give the guy enough time and much like they do with their young prospects, he was eventually traded.
Baseball Reference had it best: "July 26, 2008: Traded by the New York Yankees with Daniel McCutchen, Ross Ohlendorf and Jose Tabata to the Pittsburgh Pirates for Damaso Marte and Xavier Nady."
Jeff then pitched with the Pirates after that up to 2012, but never made it back to the show due to injury. Today, on Instagram, he made his annoucement... he retired. It was a cool way to do it actually:
A class act. Wish Jeff well.
