Reliever Joba Chamberlain last pitched for the Indians on July 3 last season. He signed a minor league deal with the Brewers in January this year but was released towards the end of March and hasn’t been heard from since.

As George A. King III of the New York Post reports, Chamberlain isn’t considering making a comeback and is instead focusing on being a dad. Referring to his son, Chamberlain said, “Karter is in junior high and obviously this year I got to see him play a lot. It was fun to watch. We went to Cooperstown [for a tournament] and that was fun for the boys.”

Chamberlain pitched 10 seasons in the majors, seven of which were spent with the Yankees. He compiled a 3.81 ERA over 555 1/3 innings and appeared in a postseason game 21 times. According to Baseball Reference, he earned nearly $11 million in his career.
