Carlos Zambrano is hanging out at Wrigley Field today and told reporters he’s done trying to make a comeback, officially calling it quits at age 33.

Zambrano recently tried to do some throwing, but says the baseball “felt like a rock” and “life is good” in retirement.

Heavy workloads early in Zambrano’s career caught up to him, as he failed to crack 200 innings after age 26, ceased being an effective pitcher at age 29, and last appeared in the majors at age 31. Still, he earned nearly $115 million for his career and made three All-Star games, posting a 3.66 ERA in 1,959 innings.
