You won’t have Chad Durbin to kick around anymore:

Pitcher Chad Durbin, one of MLB’s good guys, has retired. He was released by #phillies in late May.

That release came after he posted a 9.00 ERA in 16 relief appearances. He failed to find an employer after that. For his whole 14-year career he played for six different clubs: the Royals, Phillies, Indians, Tigers Diamondbacks and Braves. He finishes with a 5.03 lifetime ERA in 456 career games.
