After Being Cut by Dodgers, RHP Jordan Yamamoto Announces Retirement from Baseball

Former Dodgers RHP Jordan Yamamoto has officially announced his retirement from the game of baseball on Twitter. The 26-year-old was with the Dodgers during spring training, but was a part of their first-round of cuts last week. Now, a week later, he’s formally announced his retirement from the MLB.

In his message, he had a lot of ‘thank you’s’ for the people that helped him get here. He didn’t announce a reason for the retirement, but said that he has no regret about the decision, although it is bittersweet.

Yamamoto has spent parts of three seasons in the Major Leagues with the Miami Marlins and New York Mets. He made his debut with Miami in 2019, going 4-5 with a 4.46 ERA in 15 starts.

He then struggled in 2020, but came back in limited time in 2021 to the tune of a 4.05 ERA in 6.2 innings.

In 2022, he was in the Mets’ minor league system. And this year, he signed with the Dodgers on a minor league deal and was a spring training invitee.

Best of luck to Yamamoto in the next chapter of his life!
