The Boston Red Sox are busy at the league's Winter Meetings trying to improve the ball club for 2023 and beyond. But that didn't stop a former member of the roster from making a big announcement.

Former Red Sox Cy Young award winner Rick Porcello announced his retirement from baseball on Monday. He made the announcement via an appearance on the Bradfo Sho podcast from WEEI.com's site editor Rob Bradford.

Porcello last pitched for the New York Mets in 2020 but had spent the previous five in Boston. He was a crucial member of the 2018 World Series champions. Porcello took home the Cy Young that season with an electric 22-4 record, 3.15 ERA and just 0.9 home runs per nine innings.

Porcello made three starts and five appearances during Boston's World Series run. He began his 12-year MLB career with the Detroit Tigers in 2009.
