According to Mark Feinsand of the New York Daily News, right-hander Scott Proctor has decided to retire from baseball.

Proctor, now 36, hasn’t pitched in the majors since 2011 with the Braves and Yankees. After spending last season with the Doosan Bears of the Korean Baseball Organization, he had an 8.59 ERA and 6/10 K/BB ratio over 7 1/3 innings this season with the Orioles’ Triple-A affiliate.

Proctor compiled a 3.38 ERA in 166 relief appearances between 2006-2007 before he began to break down physically, but he told Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle in March that his decline had more to do with his alcoholism than being overworked by Joe Torre during his time with the Yankees and Dodgers.

    Joe Torre says “nonsense, he hasn’t pitched since 2011 so he’s well rested.” and sends Scott out to pitch innings 2-8. Scott’s arm has to be restrained.

    Sad end to a career derailed by overuse and alcoholism.

    Not a sad end. This clown made a bajillion dollars while being an undisciplined clown. Happy to see him go.
