Dellin Betances Announces Retirement, Ending Decade-long MLB Career
Updated: May 18
Former New York Yankees and New York Mets pitcher Dellin Betances has announced retirement. The announcement caps off a decade long career in the majors that spanned from 2011-2021. Betances was part of the Los Angeles Dodgers organization in the minor leagues at the time of retirement.
Dellin Betances spent eight years in pinstripes on the New York Yankees where he would rank as the third best Yankees pitcher in ERA through 300+IP, he had a career 2.36 ERA in 381.2 IP as a Yankee. Betances joined the Mets in 2020, in two seasons comprised of 16 games and 12.2 innings on the mound Betances had a 7.82 ERA.
Betances was nasty and a force to be reckoned with in his prime, but a pileup of injuries would spell his fate to an early ending.
