According to John Lott of the National Post, left handed pitcher Darren Oliver is considering retirement. Even though he'll decide after the season is over, Lott says Oliver sounds like he's leaning towards retirement.
“Every kid needs a father at home,” Oliver said. “That's important to me. I think it should be important to a lot of people. Baseball's second. Family's first. I've always said that.”
Oliver, 41, is 3-4 with a 2.10 ERA, 0.5 HR/9, 2.4 BB/9 and 8.4 SO/9 in 55.2 innings with the Blue Jays in 2012.
