Baltimore Orioles slugger Chris Davis announced his retirement on Thursday.
The 35-year-old was going to miss the entire season after hip labrum surgery he underwent in May.
“After an extended time dealing with my injury and recent hip surgery, I informed the Orioles about my decision to retire effective today,” said Davis’ statement.
Davis’ $161 million seven-year contract was originally due to expire next year.
In 2013 and 2015, Davis led the majors with 53 and 47 home runs, respectively. In 2014, he hit .196 with 26 homers and in 2016 he hit .221 with 38 homers and 219 strikeouts.
He retires with 295 career home runs in his 13 seasons with the Orioles and Texas Rangers.
