Rob Carr/Getty Images(MILWAUKEE) — Former MLB pitcher Jeff Suppan announced his retirement on Thursday.  

“After 17 Major League seasons, I’ve squeezed everything out of my ability,” Suppan said. “I am both honored and blessed to have played the game with some of the greatest teammates and coaches. Baseball will always hold a special place in my heart and I am looking forward to the next chapter of my life.”

Suppan won 140 games in 417 regular-season starts during his career. He last pitched in 2012 with the San Diego Padres and made six starts with the team.

Suppan never made an All-Star team and had his most successful run with the St. Louis Cardinals from 2004-2006 and a stint with the club in 2010. He was named the MVP of the NLCS in 2006 and won a World Series title that year.
