Report: Former Yankees reliever Deryn Betances retires

Article Author:



Former New York Yankees reliever Derin Betances retired Wednesday, according to the New York Post.

The right-hander was released by the Los Angeles Dodgers early Wednesday after signing his minor league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers in April. He spent most of the season with Triple-A Oklahoma City, going 0-3 with an 11.08 ERA in 15 appearances (one start).

Betances, 34, is best known for his performances with the Yankees. He spent his eighth season in the Bronx, recording 21 wins and 22 losses, a 2.36 ERA, 36 saves, and his 621 strikeouts in 381 2/3 innings. From his 2014 to his 2017 he was named to his team as an All-Star in his League of Americans for four consecutive years.

After spending time with the Yankees, Betances returned to crosstown rival New York City where he spent two of his seasons with the Mets, though he didn't perform very well, partly due to shoulder problems. He made just 16 relief appearances with the Mets in 2020 and he went 0-1 in 2021 with a 7.82 ERA.
