Jeff Fletcher of the Orange County Register reports that pitcher Joe Blanton has retired from baseball. Blanton had made two starts for Triple-A Sacramento in the Athletics organization, allowing seven runs (six earned) in 10 2/3 innings.

Blanton, 33, has fallen far since winning the World Series with the Phillies in 2008. Between 2009-13 with the Phillies, Dodgers, Angels, Blanton posted a 4.82 ERA in 736 innings. The most memorable moment of his career may have been when he hit a home run off of Edwin Jackson in Game 4 of the 2008 World Series.

Best of luck to Blanton in his post-baseball life.
