Branden Kline has Retired

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this was posted elsewhere and I did not see it.  Sort of surprising, isn't it?

 

Branden Kline has announced his retirement from baseball.

Kline is only 29 years old, but he wrote on his personal Instagram page Wednesday that he is "looking forward to spending more time with my family and being more involved in spiritual matters." The former second-round pick finishes with a career 5.48 ERA, 1.48 WHIP, and 41/22 K/BB ratio in 46 total major league innings.

Good luck to Brandon in his future endeavors. He always was a stand up guy and showed a lot of perseverance in returning from significant injuries to pitch in the big leagues.

I think I remember an interview with him, and he was very impressive. I hope he earned enough money to establish a grubstake for future endeavors. And he had 41 Ks in the bigs. That is a legit source of pride.

I have been in Branden's corner since he signed.  We graduated from the same high school many, many years apart.   Sorry to see him give it up.   I thought he could make it as a reliever.  But I guess at 29 his options became limited with MLB organizations.

I’m a little surprised the threw in the towel, but he’s probably more of a realist than most players in his position.  Good luck to Branden in his future endeavors.
