The Kansas City Royals released veteran right hander Kyle Lohse on Thursday, according to The Athletic’s Rustin Dodd, and the veteran is retiring in the aftermath.

Lohse, 39, had been pitching with Kansas City’s Triple-A affiliate in Omaha after signing a minor league deal back in March of this year after not pitching in the majors since throwing 9 1.3 innings back in 2016.

Lohse has struggled to find his way back to big leagues and now says that this is “probably it” for his career, according to the Omaha World-Herald’s Tony Boone.

Immediately following his release, Lohse posted the following to his Instagram page:

“It’s been a hell of a ride, Baseball, you’ve taken me a lot of places I’ve never thought or even dreamed of. The highs. The lows. The people I’ve met. The teammates I’ve had the pleasure of battling alongside. The guys on the other teams I’ve had the pleasure of battling against. Time to take it to the house knowing I gave it all I had each and every time.”
