SAN DIEGO (AP) Padres right-hander Jered Weaver announced his retirement before San Diego played the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday.

Weaver, a three-time All-Star, battled health issues since signing with the Padres in the offseason. The 12-year veteran, who spent the bulk of his career with the Los Angeles Angels, had a lifetime mark of 150-98 with a 3.63 ERA. In seven postseason appearances, he was 2-1 with a 2.60 ERA.

"I've decided to step away from baseball," Weaver, 34, said in a release. "While I've been working hard to get back on the mound, my body just will not allow me to compete like I want to."
