Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that right-hander Blake Hawksworth, a 28th-round pick of the Cardinals in 2001, has retired from baseball and gone to work for agent Scott Boras and the Boras Corp.
Hawksworth made his major league debut in St. Louis on June 6, 2009 and went on to post a 4.07 ERA in 183 1/3 career innings at the big league level (mostly as a reliever). His last MLB appearance was with the Dodgers in late September of 2011.
Hawksworth will turn 31 years old next month.
