Baltimore Orioles first baseman Chris Davis announced his retirement after 13 MLB seasons on Thursday. 

Davis said he can not continue due to various injuries and was already ruled out for the season with a hip injury.

“After an extended time dealing with my injury and recent hip surgery, I informed the Orioles about my decision to retire effective today,” Davis said in a statement. “I want to thank the Orioles partnership group, led by the Angelos family, the Orioles organization, my teammates and coaches, the University of Maryland Children’s Hospital with whom I will continue to be involved following my retirement, and of course, Birdland. Thank you all for the many memories that I will cherish forever.”

Davis appeared in 1,151 games with the Orioles and was one of most feared power hitters over the last decade.  He hit 295 home runs and drove in 780 runs during his career.
